Watch: Emre Can scores incredible, acrobatic goal for Liverpool vs. Watford

Monday May 1st, 2017

Emre Can may have scored the goal of the year in the English Premier League on Monday. 

The Turkish midfielder broke through for Liverpool vs. Watford just before the stroke of halftime with an audacious flying attempt, making solid contact to a lofted service into the box and putting the ball by Watford goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes. 

The goal is Can's fifth of the season, and the third assist for Lucas. It would prove to be the only goal of the game, as Liverpool won 1–0 to increase its chances of finishing in the EPL's top four.
