On the 10th anniversary of Lucas Leiva sealing the formalities of a switch to Liverpool, club statistician Ged Rea presents 21 facts and figures about the long-serving Reds No.21…

The Brazilian has played in 99 cup games for Liverpool – 18 FA Cup, 24 League Cup and 57 in Europe.

The team Lucas has faced most often in his Reds career is Chelsea (19 times), closely followed by Everton (17).

He has scored seven goals for the club, with three coming in Europe, two in the FA Cup and one each in the Premier League and League Cup.

His only league goal so far came against Newcastle United on May 3, 2009 in the 87th minute. He had been on the pitch for only eight minutes following his introduction as a substitute.

When scoring at Plymouth Argyle in the FA Cup in January, he ended a drought of 200 games for the club without finding the net.

He has captained Liverpool 14 times in his career, with eight of those coming during the 2015-16 campaign and five more this season.

Lucas has shared the pitch with 120 different Liverpool players during his time at Anfield.

His best season for appearances came in 2009-10 when he played 50 times, making 46 starts and a further four as a substitute.
