Lucas Leiva says Liverpool have taken their eye off the ball at times this season.

Lucas feels that they may have been preoccupied thinking about other targets, rather than concentrating on immediate tasks.

"We need to look at the bigger picture," said Lucas. "People keep talking about the top four after we win games but sometimes it takes longer than fans and players expect.

"This is a big game in a big competition, one we really want to do well in. I am sure we can turn it around."
