Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is hopeful he will return to fitness in time to face West Brom on Saturday.
Gerrard was initially expected to be out for a month after having groin surgery on March 10, but first-team coach Steve Clarke revealed there was an outside chance he would be fit for the trip to The Hawthorns.
Gerrard now believes he has a good chance of featuring against former boss Roy Hodgson as the Reds look to maintain their hopes of securing European football next season.
"It's good, I'm probably three or four days away from full training, so hopefully I'll be involved against West Brom," he told Sky Sports. "It depends on how the next three or four days go."
He added: "Being injured is the worst part of being a footballer. It's frustrating missing games being on the treatment table so you do everything you can in your rehab and away from football to get back as quickly as possible."
