Lucas Leiva has returned to training for Liverpool after a six week layoff stemming from a groin injury picked up in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park in early February.
The report from the Echo is already suggesting that the United clash this weekend is likely too soon for the Brazilian and that Easter Saturday's fixture against Arsenal would be a more reasonable expectation after such a lengthy layoff. Even when he is fully fit, he may not be in a position to supplant either Jordan Henderson or Steven Gerrard for one of the two central midfield positions, lest either are hurting themselves. Gerrard is having his final hurrah as a Red and Henderson has been superb as the changing of the guard takes place. Mar 18 - 10:15 PM
