Great comment from the article:

'Here're some stats for you: before we narrowly beat Stoke 1-0 at Anfield a couple months ago, Liverpool had played 22 games in all competitions. Lucas played in 11 of those (10 starts; 1 sub). Of the games Lucas didn't play, our record was P11 W2 D2 L7. Games WITH Lucas: P11 W7 D2 L2. And this article highlighted our form since then, with Lucas, but remember, it is 1 defeat from our last 15 games in all competitions, and that was the game he didn't play in. Also, if you look at the graphic in the article, showing our last 10 PL games, we've actually kept 5 clean sheets in 10 games...considering our lack of quality/confidence in defence and in goal, that's simply incredible. Lucas is by far our most important player for the rest of the season until Sturridge comes back to full match fitness and resumes banging in some much-needed goals.'
