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."

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.
