Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva says Joe Cole can bring the X-factor to their play this season.

Cole joined Liverpool this summer on a Bosman from Chelsea.

"Even before he joined us we knew he was a good player," Lucas told LFC Weekly. "Having trained with him now we have seen his qualities up close.

"He is a very clever player who has great skills and produces great turns. He can create opportunities and score goals. If he plays as he did at Chelsea he'll be a very good signing.

"Bringing him here is great for the club. He's an England international who has won the league a few times with Chelsea.

"He is experienced and knows better than any of us what we need to do to be successful."
