Harry Redknapp says William Gallas has a chance of facing Birmingham City on Sunday - but Rafa van der Vaart is a doubt.

William picked up a calf injury at Manchester City that ruled him out of Sunday's win at Liverpool but he could yet feature again in Sunday's finale.

Rafa limped off early in the second half having scored our opening goal at Anfield. "He has a calf problem and he's struggling," reported Harry before training this morning (Friday, May 20).

Steven Pienaar (groin) is also a doubt but good news for Harry saw Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Alan Hutton and Jermaine Jenas all declared fit.

Heurelho Gomes (back) has also returned to training while Tom Huddlestone (ankle) and Wilson Palacios (knee) were both rated as 'possible' to be back in the frame by Harry.

Meanwhile, after Ledley King's successful return at Anfield last weekend, Harry said he would 'wait and see how he is' before Sunday.

Gareth Bale (ankle) remains sidelined.
