Liverpool'S 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 today.

Kuyt was injured on international duty with Holland last month and it was initially feared he could be out for a lengthy period. But Kuyt said: "I am quite happy with them because I have recovered quickly."

When asked about this weekend's Premier League clash against Chelsea at Anfield, he added: "It depends on how the next couple of days go. Hopefully the team training will be okay and it will be up to the manager."
