Lucas back for Liverpool

Lucas travelled home to Brazil as part of his rehabilitation but he has now been deemed fit enough to return to regular first-team duties – he has been out since the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on February 7.

The 28-year-old???s holding role in central midfield played an important part in Liverpool’s turnaround in fortunes, a run of form which has seen them go undefeated in the Premier League since mid-December.

Lucas posted a picture of himself out on the field at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground with the caption “Back in full training!”.

His comeback may have come too late to feature in the clash with Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday where a win would see them return to the top four for the first time since August.

If he does not play this weekend, the schedule gives him a chance to stake his claim for a place in the first team for the remainder of the season – the Premier League will be on international break before the clash with Arsenal on April 4, with an FA Cup quarter-final replay at Blackburn coming up four days later.
