Lucas Leiva could be back ahead of schedule. The Liverpool midfielder is "progressing very well," from the injury he picked up during the recent Capital One Cup final.
Lucas damaged his thigh muscle while taking the second shoot-out penalty and while initial reports suggested the problem was only minor, further tests confirmed the 29-year-old could be out for up-to six weeks. However, it now seems that the Brazilian might be back sooner than originally anticipated: "I’m progressing very well," he said. "I’m really happy with the way it’s going. I’m aiming that after the international break I’ll be close to coming back and hopefully playing a big part in the last part of the season." There was also good news regarding Skrtel who played an hour for the development side on Friday night. "Martin has been out for a while and he looked sharp. Obviously he will now be itching to get in the squad for the Europa League clash with Man United, so it’s onwards for him from there," said academy manager Michael Beale. Mar 13 - 10:11 AM
