Liverpool Fans Can Help Us Finish The Job Against Dortmund, Says Emre Can

Emre Can believes the Liverpool supporters can be the ’12th man’ on Thursday night when the Reds play host to Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League quarter-final second leg.

Klopp’s men travelled to the Signal Iduna Park last week for the first leg of the European tie, which resulted in a 1-1 draw after Divock Origi’s opener was cancelled out by Mats Hummels in the second half.

However, it was probably Jurgen Klopp’s side who left the stadium the happier, as his side grabbed a crucial away goal and put in an all-round impressive display.

The return leg is set to take place at Anfield on Thursday night, where Liverpool supporters are expected to greet their players with a rapturous reception to try and push them into the final four.

And Can, who will be available for the game after missing the win over Stoke through suspension, believes the fans can be the ones that give them the lift they need to qualify for the semi-finals.

“I think it’s both – of course to win the game on Thursday, and in the Premier League we want to win every game,” Can told Liverpool’s official website.

“Our target is to win the games and we will see what happens. You never know.”

“We want to win the game on Thursday, it’s our target,” Can added. “I think the result in Dortmund was a good result for us and we had good chances.

“1-1 is still a very good result against Dortmund because it is very difficult to play there, but on Thursday we play here at Anfield and the fans with the atmosphere.

“Hopefully we will win that game.”

There has been talk on social media that Liverpool fans plan to greet the team bus as it arrives at Anfield on the streets.

The last time the supporters did a similar thing was towards the end of the 2013/14 Premier League season, as Brendan Rodgers’ then side came agonisingly close to getting their hands on the crown.
