Dickson Etuhu is in line to return for next week's west London derby with Chelsea.

The midfielder has been sidelined since the draw against West Ham at the beginning of last month with an ankle injury.

But the Nigerian has been using an oxygen chamber in a bid to speed up his recovery from the ankle ligament damage he suffered.

And boss Mark Hughes is hopeful Etuhu will be back in time for next Wednesday's crunch clash at Stamford Bridge.
