Allen: Good to see Lucas back
JOE Allen has welcomed back Lucas Leiva after the Brazil star returned from injury in Liverpool's weekend win over Southampton.
"You're always going to miss quality players like Lucas and it's great to have him back in the side," said the former Swansea City star.
"His return, with the steel and quality he brings, is only going to help the team going forward.
"With him back playing, I'm sure we'll get the benefits of that in terms of points and our position in the table."
