Liverpool midfielder Lucas happy playing with "good person" Adam

Liverpool midfielder Lucas is happy playing alongside Charlie Adam.

In the absence of skipper Steven Gerrard, Lucas has formed an effective partnership in central midfield with Charlie Adam, and he claims the Scot is a pleasure to play alongside.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "I've found our partnership very good and I think we have done well together.

"Charlie has played in England for a few years now so he didn't need to adapt too much.

"It will still take him a little bit of time to settle in the team but he is a good person who works really hard.

"Charlie is a player who has an offensive mentality and likes to get forward and give the last pass and of course he is very dangerous from set-piece areas and has already provided a few assists this season.

"With him being more attack-minded and Stevie and Jordan (Henderson), who are able to play in the middle as well, also offensive players, my job is to cover them and try to be in a good position to give the back four a bit of security."
