Harry Redknapp reports that Rafa van der Vaart has a chance of returning to action in Sunday's big clash against Liverpool.

The Dutch international, last season's top goalscorer, picked up a hamstring injury against Manchester City on August 28.

"Rafa could be available," said Harry after training on Friday.

Harry added that he was also hopeful on Ledley King, who made such an impressive return to action in last Saturday's win at Wolves.

"He'll train on Saturday and tells us if he's fit," said Harry, who also revealed that William Gallas had returned to training but as yet wasn't fit enough to be considered.

Aaron Lennon (groin) remains doubtful with Sandro (knee), Michael Dawson (Achilles), Danny Rose (ankle), Steven Pienaar (groin) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle).
