Lucas has made 30 appearances for Liverpool this season, 24 of which have been starts, after coming close to leaving the club last summer.

The 29-year-old is convinced the players who travelled to Tenerife will benefit from the trip in the crucial weeks ahead.

He said: “It was a good chance to take our families, to be closer to each other and know each other better. It was a great idea to go out, get a little bit of sun and come back for these last six weeks of the season, which will be very intense.

“We were still working in training and for me, doing rehab. It was just going out to get a bit of sun and change the place a little bit. It’s going to be a very intense six weeks and we are all ready to make the most of it.”
