The Spanish defender limped off with a foot problem in the second half of last weekend's defeat to Tottenham in his first game since suffering ankle ligament damage in February.

Chico was ruled out for seven weeks after rupturing ankle ligaments in the 4-1 home win over QPR on February 9, and missed the Capital One Cup final triumph as a result.

It was feared Chico suffered a recurrence of his ankle injury, but Laudrup hopes the 26-year-old will be fit to face Norwich this season.

"Chico got a kick. It was the same foot so he was a little worried but it's not so bad.

"He should be ready in a couple of days."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
