Lucas: We can beat anybody

The Brazilian is in line to replace Xabi Alonso for the clash with Stoke on Saturday.

“Each point will be really important for us in the race for the title,” the Brazilian told Liverpool’s official website.

“We have confidence and we have quality. We are producing some good performances and we are playing well as a team. We feel we can beat anyone.

“Liverpool have waited a long time to win the Premier League title and now we have a chance to win it.

“Christmas was a crucial time for us with a lot of games in a row but we got a lot of points which was good.

“If we can win on Saturday we can relax and then see what happens in the other game.”
