Lucas Leiva has heaped praise on two Liverpool teammates.

The Brazil midfielder says striker Luis Suarez is already looking the goods.

"He is a dangerous striker, you could see that against Wigan and he worked really hard to help the team," said the Brazil international.

"You could see his quality with the free-kick (which hit the crossbar) and I am sure he will score a lot of goals."

Lucas also praised Raul Meireles, who scored his fifth goal in six matches against Wigan, before being forced off with sickness just after half-time.

"Raul is scoring a lot of goals," said the 24-year-old.

"He is playing in an advanced position with freedom and he will have chances to score and we know he is capable of that."
