Brendan Rodgers has revealed Lucas Leiva is making good progress in his recovery from a thigh injury.
The Brazil midfielder has been sidelined since picking up the problem in the early stages of the Reds’ first home Barclays Premier League game of the season against Manchester City on August 26.
While Lucas is still some way away from a first-team return, Rodgers has confirmed he remains on schedule.
“Lucas has been out on the field in the last week or so which is great,” said the boss.
“He’s not doing multi-directional movements yet but he’s doing a lot of straight-line running and endurance work.
“I’m anticipating maybe another three weeks but his professionalism is great and he’ll get back probably sooner than is anticipated.”
