Lucas told the official club website about the experience, he said: "It's always great to play in a great stadium.

“Especially at Fenway Park in front of the fantastic supporters and we hope we can get some better results in the next few friendlies.”

The Brazilian midfielder went on to explain how it was a different experience for him this time, compared to the previous meeting between Liverpool and Roma in pre-season friendly.
