Lucas sends message to injured Liverpool duo on Twitter

Liverpool duo Danny Ings and Joe Gomez are set to miss the rest of the season.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has taken to social networking site Twitter to wish his teammates Joe Gomez and Danny Ings a speedy recovery.

Both Gomez and Ings are set to miss the rest of the 2015-16 campaign due to knee injuries.

While 18-year-old defender Gomez suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury during an England Under-21 game, former Burnley forward Ings picked up a similar problem in training with Liverpool (as reported by BBC Sport in two separate reports).

Brazil international defender midfielder Lucas hopes that the Liverpool duo recover soon and has sent them the following message on social media:

Liverpool are 10th in the Premier League table at the moment with 12 points from eight matches, just three points behind fourth-place Crystal Palace.

The Merseyside outfit will take on Tottenham Hotspur away from home at White Hart Lane in North London on Saturday afternoon.
