Benitez: Leiva winning over Liverpool fans

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez believes Lucas Leiva is winning over the Anfield fans.

Lucas turned in the latest in a line of impressive displays against Everton on Saturday, earning the plaudits of the Anfield crowd.

Benitez told liverpoolfc.tv: "Lucas is a very good player. His teammates know it and now the fans are starting to realise it too.

"If you analyse the history of the club you will find players that have perhaps had bad times.

"But Lucas is the kind of player that has character.

"The fans realise that this is what they want to see from their players."
