Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has returned to full training which is music to ears of under pressure boss Brendan Rodgers.

Lucas suffered a thigh injury in the first few minutes of their opening home game of the season against Manchester City in August and has been out of action for 12 weeks, with Rodgers chopping and changing his midfield during that period.

While Lucas will not feature for the Reds today against Wigan, he may well be involved in the Anfield clubs’ next Europa League game against Young Boys on Thursday.

The likes of Jonjo Shelvey and Joe Allen have stepped into the central midfield role competitively since the Brazilian picked up his second long term injury in as many seasons, but the returning fans favourite is clearly pleased to be back.

“Happy to be back and feeling good,” Lucas tweeted yesterday.

“Just get some more training sessions and I hope I will be available soon.”
