Freddie Ljungberg expects to be fit for West Ham United's Premier League clash with Derby on Saturday after it emerged he does not have a hamstring injury.
Ljungberg, who has missed the Hammers' last two matches, has now been diagnosed with a nerve problem but has been able to resume training.
He said: 'The injury was a little weird, especially since it was quite painful. It was quite hard for the medical team to diagnose but I've been told it was an inflamed nerve.
'Thankfully I am getting back to full fitness very quickly.
'Luckily, the hamstring is not injured which is great. It is likely I will be fully ready this coming week and available for this weekend game.
'I am lucky it wasn't a hamstring injury, and I have been told that the extra work I put in this winter, in the gym, is the reason I am in good shape.'
