Lucas on His Game-Winner: I Did It In Training Last Week Too!

Papa Lucas spoke on ending his seven-year goal drought to send Liverpool into the next FA Cup round and kick off what is sure to be a lengthy scoring run. The Reds just about squeaked past spirited League Two side Plymouth Argyle to move into the fourth round after a 0-0 draw at the first attempted necessitated a replay. The boss picked a near-identical XI from 10 days ago, with Daniel Sturridge replacing Emre Can and the recovering Philippe Coutinho getting the start this time over Sheyi Ojo in a bid to get the Brazilian back to full match fitness. It ultimately ended happily at 1-0 for...

Plymouth Argyle 0, Liverpool 1: First Thoughts

Plymouth Argyle 0, Liverpool 1: First Thoughts

Liverpool get a breakthrough from the unlikeliest of sources, Lucas Leiva. Plymouth Argyle 0: Liverpool 1: Lucas (!) 19’ Pre-match thoughts: I wasn’t really excited about this match, and then Herr Klopp put out the starting line-up. This could be fun. We have Philippe Coutinho in his first start since his injury, alongside Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi. Additionally, we have young Ben Woodburn helping out in the attack, and Ovie Ejaria in midfield. Finally, we have Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alberto Moreno bombing down the wings. I can’t see this one ending in a scoreless...

Southampton 1, Liverpool 0: First Thoughts

It was bad, but the scoreline could have been worse, as the Reds fall to the Saints in the first leg of the League Cup. Southampton 1: Redmond 20’Liverpool 0: Pre-match Thoughts: Papa Lucas Leiva gets the surprise nod—in midfield! It looks like Klopp will revert to a 4-2-3-1, with Lucas and Emre Can on the double pivot, and Daniel Sturridge leading the line. Liverpool will be Toxic Yellowing it tonight. Liverpool are zipping it about with some nifty one-touch passing in the early going, but have yet to really challenge the Southampton defense. That crucial last pass into the box...

Lucas Leiva considering his options amid Liverpool's title challenge

Jurgen Klopp dismisses Liverpools favourites tag against Southampton, and his desire to win the EFL Cup for the club. Craig Burley breaks down Liverpools busy January and how Jurgen Klopp may look to field his men going forward. Lucas Leiva says Liverpools title challenge could keep him at the club until the end of the season but he is now seriously considering his long-term future. Brazilian midfielder Lucas is the longest serving player currently at the club, with his 10-year anniversary due this summer, but he has become a squad player under manager Jurgen Klopp, making just 14...

Liverpool Reportedly Sanction Lucas Departure

Liverpool Reportedly Sanction Lucas Departure

There are reports all but confirming Lucas Leiva’s departure, but the sources deserve skepticism. Lucas Leiva is the longest serving current member of Liverpool’s squad, and while he isn’t a regular starter any more, his ability to fill in in midfield and defence along with his work with the club’s younger players has made him a respected and valued depth option who has managed 12 appearances so far this season. Despite this, Marca have claimed that the club have sanctioned a loan deal that would see him head to Inter Milan for the next six months. An option to buy at the end of it...

Klavan Impressed by Reds ‘Maturity’

Klavan Impressed by Reds ‘Maturity’

The Estonian defender think his side adapted well to Stoke’s tactics. Joël Matip’s tranquil aplomb aside, Liverpool’s current central defenders have generally been an inconsistent bunch. Dejan Lovren started out as a chemical dumpster fire, improved immensely through the Lovrenaissance, and now vacillates between the two. Mamadou Sakho is in the doghouse and never inspired the kind of faith you’d want your starting centre-back to do. Lucas Leiva was famously an attacking midfielder at Grêmio, and Joe Gomez is always injured. Thus, Ragnar Klavan has — despite being a €5m...

Inter Milan Reportedly Move for Veteran Liverpool Midfielder

Lucas Leiva is on the January shopping list for Inter, but a loan deal seems unlikely to tempt Liverpool. Liverpool’s Brazilian midfielder and sometimes centre half Lucas Leiva has been linked with a move away from the club every transfer window for the past five years. So, one might ask, why would this January transfer window end up being any different? The answer is that it won’t be. Over the past 24 hours, strong reports have emerged in both Italy and England suggesting that struggling Inter want Lucas in January. But they don’t want him permanently. At least not yet. What they...

Lucas Leiva Linked with January Move to Internazionale

As the sun sets and rises, Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva is linked with a move away from Anfield. It’s that time of year when myth dares to become reality for a short time. Yes, Lucas Leiva transfer rumours are here despite Jürgen Klopp telling everyone that no first-team squad members are for sale in the January transfer window. Still, the experienced Brazilian has been linked with a move to Internazionale. The Daily Mirror report that the Italian side “have made an enquiry” for a player who now functions as depth at centre back behind Dejan Lovren and Joël Matip. Ragnar Klavan appears...
