The Republic of Ireland international suffered a detached ligament in November's victory over Wolves and was expected to miss up to two months, but could now return earlier.

He told the club's official website: "I feel good, I'm progressing day by day and hopefully it won't be too much longer.

"I've been away for a week and a bit of warm weather has helped me. I'm not on crutches any more or using the air cast boot - I'm walking around pain-free.

"I'm quite fortunate in so much that I seem to recover from injuries pretty quickly but I know I need to get my ankle right before I really push on.

"It's a case of so far so good but I don't want to rush things and jeopardise the way things have gone."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
