A training ground injury for Lucas Leiva ruled the midfielder out of Sundays’ FA Cup semi-final against Aston Villa handing Steven Gerrard an opportunity to return to the side.
Lucas has been in great form since returning from a muscular problem but the Brazilian suffered a thigh injury on Thursday opening the door for Gerrard who was available again following his 3-game suspension. A Wembley appearance in his final Liverpool game – before a move to MLS side LA Galaxy – was seen by many as the perfect end to a wonderful Liverpool career but after 700+ matches spanning over 15 years it wasn’t meant to be. Despite Philippe Coutinho opening the scoring it was Villa who hit back with goals from the in-form Christian Benteke and Fabian Delph; although Mario Balotelli had an equaliser wrongly disallowed for off-side it was the Claret and Blues who thoroughly deserved the win.
