Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Lucas Leiva's performance v Southampton

The Reds faithful were delighted with the 28-year-old on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool fans were delighted with Lucas Leiva on Sunday afternoon following a measured display from the Brazilian midfielder against Southampton.

And Lucas impressed the Anfield faithful far more than fellow countryman Philippe Coutinho...

Indeed, the 23-year-old has been in rotten form of late and Liverpool lacked creativity again v Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

You can see what Jurgen Klopp is trying to get out of the players on Merseyside but, every time they venture forward, there is usually the same outcome.

Liverpool are suffering from the same problems they have been all year and Klopp will need plenty of time - and transfer-market activity - to sort it out.

But one man who has taken to the Klopp reign already was many people's choice for man of the match against Southampton. Lucas is the in-form Brazilian at Anfield right now and the 28-year-old has kept things ticking in the middle of the park under Klopp so far.

Here's how fans reacted to Lucas's display on Twitter. If the Reds' more creative players can put in a similarly effective performance, the Kop will be celebrating wildly in no time!
