Anfield anchor midfielder ready for Reds return after announcing comeback match for Liverpool reserves.
Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has returned to training after his two month layoff due to a knee ligament injury.
The Brazil international will play for the Reds reserve team today, and posted a message to his followers on social network Twitter that his recovery has gone well.
Today I make my return with the reserve team. I am glad that my recovery went very well and I am looking forward for the last 10 games.

Lucas now has a big task on his hands to get back into both the Liverpool and Brazil teams, for although he remains a very fine player indeed, each has flourished in his absence.
Jordan Henderson has forged an impressive partnership alongside Steven Gerrard at the base of the Reds midfield, while at international level both VfL Wolfsburg star Luiz Gustavo and Fernandinho of Manchester City have been excellent.
