LIVERPOOL, England(AP) Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva will miss the rest of the season after he damaged knee ligaments in his team's League Cup quarterfinal win over Chelsea.

The Brazil international was hurt in a seemingly innocuous challenge in Tuesday's 2-0 win. He played on for a couple of minutes before collapsing and getting carried off on a stretcher.

Liverpool says a scan had showed that Lucas injured the anterior cruciate ligament and needs surgery.
