Lucas Leiva is taking every precaution over his health after the Liverpool midfielder’s recent return from an injury setback.

The Brazil international was on the receiving end of a particularly nasty challenge from Moussa Sissoko during a 2-1 victory over Newcastle United in mid-April.

Lucas made his return at Anfield on Saturday after a late substitute appearance in a narrow victory win against west London side Queens Park Rangers.

If three points wasn’t enough to keep the Brazilian chirpy, Lucas was proudly admiring his FitBit watch on Instagram on Wednesday afternoon.

Lucas posted the above photo and wrote: “Thanks @fitbit for my watch!! Recommend it”

The 28-year-old has been sidelined with a number of niggles throughout the campaign, limiting the midfielder to just 1,200 minutes of first-team action in the Premier League.

Lucas was linked with a move to Serie A outfits Inter Milan and Napoli earlier in the season before he won back a place in Brendan Rodgers’ starting line-up.
