Injury relief for Ljungberg

West Ham United midfielder Freddie Ljungberg is confident of being back in action this weekend, after confirming that he has not suffered another hamstring injury. The 31-year-old Sweden international has missed the Hammers' last two games, but was relieved to find out that the problem was nerve-related and not a renewed hamstring injury. He said: "The injury was a little weird, especially since it was quite painful. "It was quite hard for the medical team to diagnose, but I've been told it was an inflamed nerve. Thankfully I am getting back to full fitness very quickly. "Luckily, the hamstring is not injured which is great. It is likely I will be fully ready this coming week and available for this weekend game. "I am lucky it wasn't a hamstring injury and I have been told that the extra work I put in this winter, in the gym, is the reason I am in good shape." Ljungberg has scored twice in 26 appearances for the Irons this season, having moved to Upton Park from Arsenal last summer.
