Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt is pushing to face Chelsea on Sunday after three weeks on the sidelines.
The 30-year-old has made a quicker than expected recovery from ankle ligament damage and will resume full training on Friday.
Kuyt was injured on international duty with Holland last month and it was initially feared he could be out for a lengthy period.
Kuyt, working as a TV pundit at the Reds' Europa League clash against Napoli, told Five: "I have worked really hard with the medical team.
"I am quite happy with them because I have recovered quickly. I have trained really hard and am ready to start team training tomorrow (Friday)."
