Liverpool legend Mark Lawrenson feels Lucas Leiva should be starting in midfield alongside Steven Gerrard.
Lucas has failed to make much of an impact at Anfield this season and there has been talk that he will be on his way to Napoli as soon s the transfer window opens up.
However, Lawrenson believes Lucas could be the solution to some of Liverpool’s current problems.
Lawrenson told the Liverpool echo: “Lucas is generally a 7/10 player. He isn’t going to change games, but he rarely lets you down and he knows his job.
“And if you are a team struggling for form, if you get enough 7/10 performances then you have a chance of changing from bad to good.
“I don’t see why Lucas and Steven Gerrard can’t both play in a deep-lying defensive mode.”
