Liverpool Star Urges Fans To Celebrate

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has urged Reds fans to celebrate the club's impressive start to the season after three 1-0 wins and a Capital One Cup victory over Notts County has lead to their best start since 1995.

The Brazilian told of his delight going into the international break at the top of the table.

"It's a great start, we can't deny that. That's the way we wanted to start," he said.

Liverpool has won all three Premier League games with a single Daniel Sturridge goal, a small margin that won't continue, but Lucas is remaining optimistic of the season ahead.

"I don't think it's dangerous for the fans to get a bit carried away after a win like this - they should celebrate," he added.

Liverpool did not qualify for Europe last season but after such a promising start and with the recent additions of Victor Moses from Chelsea (loan), Tiago Ilori from Sporting Lisbon and Mamadou Sakho from PSG, there's no wonder the red half of Liverpool is even more optimistic than usual.

"There's a greater belief among us now. We all believed previously, but now we have a stronger team," said the Brazilian.

Brendan Rodgers has recently said that the club's lack of European football this season will help to create an added incentive to win a domestic cup competition but Lucas is focusing on finishing in an elusive top-four position.

"We've always said the main target this season is a top-four finish as we all want to play Champions League football," said the 26-year-old.

Lucas is not getting carried away with the early-season hype but is reminding the Liverpool fans to appreciate every important victory as they come.

"If we keep going like we have done now, then it's going to be a great season. But the fans just have to celebrate, and if they have the belief then they will support us even more," he concluded.
