Emre Can has insisted he and his teammates are 'a small, small step' away from finding their best form again after Liverpool endured a frustrating afternoon against Manchester United.

Jürgen Klopp's side controlled proceedings at Anfield on Saturday, enjoying 62 per cent of the possession and taking 19 shots at goal to their opponents' six.

However, as was so often the case prior to the international break, the Reds failed to capitalise on their dominance, and they were ultimately forced to settle for a goalless draw.

Can wasn't too disheartened, though, as he believes Liverpool are showing signs of turning a corner - and he wants that process to start against Maribor on Tuesday.

"We have to win that game because we dominated for 90 minutes. I think we had good chances and United had one shot on target with Lukaku," he told SFR Sport.

"It's the same story like before the international break but we have to go again on Tuesday because I think it's just a small, small step and then we will come in the right direction again.

"It's too early [to make judgements], nothing is over yet and we have to believe in ourselves. We have to win the next game."
