Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has revealed how the Premiership's Brazilian contingent stick together.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "On the pitch I'm going to want to beat them all, but it is getting towards being a little Brazilian colony in England.

"Once or twice a week – if we can – we will all get together somewhere, sit around and talk about Brazilian politics, sport, life and whatever in Portuguese.

"We have the twins and Anderson at United, all the boys at Man City – Jo, Robinho, Elano and Glauber Berti. Also Geovanni at Hull City is in the circle along with me and Fabio.

"It's nice to get together off the pitch to have a coffee, eat food from home and things like that."
