Liverpool midfielder Lucas to be out for two months

Thursday 23 January 2014

Liverpool have confirmed that defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva will be out for up to two months after being forced off in the recent Premier League game against Aston Villa, reports the Independent.

Lucas did not start the game against Paul Lambert’s side on Saturday, but came off the bench at half time. However, he lasted just 21 minutes on the field of play after suffering a knee ligament injury, and came off the pitch after initially attempting to play on.


The news of the Brazilian’s lengthy absence is a major blow for Liverpool, who looked somewhat fragile in defence against Villa before he entered the fray. Lucas has had a long history of picking up ligament injuries, having missed much of 2012 due an injury sustained in November of the previous year.


The injury means that Lucas will be out until March, while his chances of making the Brazil squad for this summer’s World Cup could be hindered. It also leaves Liverpool with only Joe Allen, Luis Alberto and Steven Gerrard to choose from in central midfield.
