Lucas Leiva: 'Luis Suarez return gives Liverpool confidence'

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva says that Luis Suarez's return has given the team "more confidence".

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has insisted that the team are feeling more confident following the return of striker Luis Suarez.

The Uruguay international marked his Premier League return from a 10-match ban with two goals against Sunderland on Sunday.

"[Suarez has] just given us more confidence," Lucas told the club's official website. "The squad that we had without him was a good one, but with him back in it, we'll be even better. He's one of the best in the world."

The 26-year-old, who tried to orchestrate a move out of Anfield in the summer, is expected to be in the team for this Saturday's clash against Crystal Palace.
