Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has returned to training following his groin operation.
The Anfield skipper went under the knife on 10th March to cure the complaint and was expected to be sidelined for four weeks.
However, he could be back in action for Saturday's trip to West Brom having made a swifter than anticipated comeback to the training field.
Reds boss Kenny Dalglish confirmed that the talismanic midfielder was progressing well and had rejoined his team-mates at Melwood.
"Steven's training so he has done really well to get where he is," the Scot told LFCTV.
But Dalglish gave a less welcome update on the progress of Fabio Aurelio and Martin Kelly, whose hamstring injuries are taking longer than expected to heal, although Jonjo Shelvey is on the road to recovery from his knee operation.
"Fabio and Martin Kelly have had a setback with their recovery but Jonjo Shelvey is back training," he added.
"Everyone has come back from the international matches and so far we have not had any injuries reported."
