Mamadou Sakho will need two to three weeks to recover from the hamstring injury he picked up in the FA Cup replay against Blackburn Rovers back on April 8th.
There is no fantasy impact with this news heading into this weekend as the Reds will be participating in the FA Cup semifinal and will make up their PL fixture with a double gameweek 34. That is where this news becomes relevant to fantasy managers. With Martin Skrtel back from suspension, we have a pretty clear indication of who from defense will be worth investing in for the upcoming double - Skrtel, Dejan Lovren and Alberto Moreno. Emre Can should start both games of the double as well in defense, though his midfield classification denies owners of potential clean sheet points. Apr 17 - 10:23 AM

Mamadou Sakho has returned to training for Liverpool ahead of the club's Week 27 match with Manchester City at Anfield.

After a rough first season in the Premier League, Sakho has been playing much better in recent weeks. An injury would barely have registered for supporters last season but it was a cause for some concern last week after Sakho picked up an injury in the first Europa Cup match against Besiktas. While Sakho failed to recover in time to travel to Turkey for the second leg, he has at least a chance of returning for Sunday's big Premier League match. The combination of his uncertain health and Liverpool's opponent make him a dubious candidate for fantasy purposes this weekend but moving forward he is a solid bet based on Liverpool's recent form.

Liverpool made it five consecutive away clean-sheets in the league for the first time since 1985 on Sunday and the Reds were able to stifle the Southampton attack without Mamadou Sakho who was ruled out after picking up a hip problem in the Europa League on Thursday.

The full extent of injury is not yet known and Brendan Rodgers confirmed pre-match that Sakho would need a scan "[to] see how long [the defender will be out]." However Liverpool gave another solid defensive performance with Martin Skrtel winning the man-of-the-match award while the absence of the Frenchman meant former Saint Dejan Lovren made a timely return to the starting eleven for the first time since December. The win sets up Liverpool for a potentially season defining week with an away trip to Besiktas on Thursday and the visit of Champions Manchester City next Sunday.

Liverpool were full of promise and hope having acquitted themselves well against champions elect Chelsea at Anfield a week ago, their high pressing game and searing pace on the break caused numerous problems on the night earning Thibaut Courtois the man-of-the-match award.

But all hopes of a cup final appearance were dashed as Branislav Ivanovic headed home Willian’s cross early in extra-time to seal the win. Liverpool are almost unrecognisable from the side which stuttered through the early weeks of their Premier League campaign and now look assured and something like the side which pushed Manchester City hard last season. However Wednesdays’ misery was compounded by the loss of Mamadou Sakho not long after half-time to an unspecified injury – the defender has excelled since his return from a thigh injury in December and last night was the first time he has tasted defeat in 12 games. Dejan Lovren could return should the Frenchman miss the visit of West Ham on Saturday.

Mamadou Sakho is making good progress on his return from a hamstring injury, and could even be available to face Stoke City this weekend.

Liverpool could sure use the Frenchman fit after Daniel Agger injured his calf versus Oldham in the FA Cup.

Mamadou Sakho pulled up short with a clear hamstring injury trying to defend Chelsea at the weekend. There's no confirmation yet on the extent of his injury, but surely he'll miss a few weeks.

Sakho has been a valuable defender for Liverpool who, thankfully, have cover in the return of Daniel Agger. With Jon Flanagan suffering from his own hamstring injury, this opens up a return for Aly Cissokho against Hull City.
