Lucas Leiva is thrilled with his current form.

Liverpool's defensive midfielder Lucas Leiva reckons he's in his best form since returning from knee injury.

The 28-year-old Brazilian has been impressive in recent months and has been featuring more often since Liverpool's 1-0 triumph against Stoke City in November.

The Reds have been unbeaten in 14 matches before their 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the League Cup second-leg clash at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, with Lucas's work rate being a key factor to their resilience.

However, Lucas is delighted with his good form and wants to concentrate on keeping at the level of his performance.

“After that injury, it’s probably my best moment. As I’ve said before in a few interviews I’ve given, I feel myself again and I feel really sharp, really strong and go into games thinking I have got nothing to lose,” Lucas told Liverpool’s website.

“I just enjoy them because in football you never know what is going to happen. We always know that after a bad or difficult moment always comes a good moment and vice versa.

“I just have to enjoy my football and really concentrate on keeping at the level of performance I’m playing at the moment. I think if I do that, I can be in the team and help.

“That’s what I probably wasn’t able to do at the beginning of the season, so I like to feel that I am helping – and that’s how I feel now.”
