Gerrard set for Liverpool return

Steven Gerrard

LIVERPOOL, England, Jan 25, 2010 (AFP) - Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard could make an earlier than expected return in Tuesday's Premier League match away to Wolves.

The England midfielder was set to be sidelined for at least a fortnight after suffering a hamstring injury in Liverpool's FA Cup defeat by Reading on January 13.

However, he was back in action at Liverpool's Melwood training ground over the weekend and could now play at Molineux.

"He was training on Saturday and then a full training session on Sunday, and today was the same," Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez said Monday.

"Normally he's someone who, if available, can play," the Spaniard added.

"We'll decide tomorrow (Tuesday) but I think he can be available."

Liverpool are just a point outside the top four, Champions League qualifying, places while goal difference alone is currently keeping Wolves out of the relegation zone.
