Lucas Leiva praises Anfield crowd after Liverpool defeat Manchester United
Liverpool’s Brazilian defensive midfielder praised the atmosphere in Anfield after Liverpool secured a 1-0 win over bitter rivals Manchester United.
Lucas was tireless in the heart of midfield throughout the game, and put in a top performance for The Reds in both with and without the ball.
After the game he took to Twitter to comment on the impressive victory, and the support from the fans which contributed to it:
“Great atmosphere, great win !!! Anfield was incredible !!! #LFCFamily”
Lucas has become a vital part of Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool side, and he’s played in all three of the club’s league games so far this season.
After three games Liverpool sit at the top of the English Premier League table, but many expect the club to drop down to mid-table as the season rolls on.
Lucas will be hoping to continue his good early season form, in the hope that he can force his way back into the Brazil squad.
