Carragher close to Liverpool return

Experienced centre-back Jamie Carragher is close to returning to full training after being out with a calf injury.

Carragher has missed Liverpool’s last two games but is hoping to be fit again for next week’s clash with Chelsea.

Talking to the Liverpool Echo, Carragher said: “I’m coming along fine. I’m working with the physios this week and if things continue to go well the plan is to get back into full training at the start of next week.

“It was always going to be tight to be fit for the Swansea game last weekend and with a two-week break after that match there was no point doing anything silly. It’s important to ensure I get it 100% right. Hopefully I’ll be available for the Chelsea game but I’m not thinking about games at this stage.”
