Liverpool midfielder Lucas has been ruled out for two to three months with a thigh injury, manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed.

The Brazil international suffered the injury in the opening minutes of Sunday's Barclays Premier League draw with Manchester City at Anfield.

It is a fresh blow for the 25-year-old, who had won his place back in the side after missing most of last season following knee surgery.
