Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is in contention for Tuesday's trip to Wolves after returning ahead of schedule from injury.

The England international was expected to be sidelined for at least a fortnight after sustaining a hamstring problem in the FA Cup exit to Reading on January 13. However, he returned to action at the club's Melwood training ground over the weekend and could play at Molineux.

"He was training on Saturday and then a full training session on Sunday, and Monday was the same," said manager Rafael Benitez.

"Normally he's someone who, if available, can play.

"We'll decide Tuesday but I think he can be available."
