Sakho will miss the next 3-4 weeks with a hamstring injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Sakho suffered the injury during Wednesday's FA Cup match against Blackburn and is now on tap to miss approximately four Premier League matches, along with the FA Cup semi-final tilt against Aston Villa. Kolo Toure seems to be the likely candidate to replace Sakho in the starting XI moving forward.

Sakho (back) will have a late fitness test to determine if he can play Saturday against West Ham.

Sakho aggravated his back during Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Chelsea and is still recovering, which throws a bit of a wrench in manager Brendan Rodgers' plan, as he has been starting three centrebacks recently. Glen Johnson, who replaced Sakho in Tuesday's game, could start against the Hammers if Sakho is unable to go.

Sakho picked up a knock and had to be replaced in the 57th minute of Liverpool's Capital One Cup match against Chelsea on Tuesday.

Glen Johnson came on for Sakho, and he could also replace him for Saturday's match against West Ham if the latter is unable to recover in time.

Sakho registered his third clean sheet of the season during the 1-0 victory over Sunderland on Saturday.

Sakho has been filling in for the injured Dejan Lovren (groin), although Lovren returned to the pitch as a sub Saturday and he may be in line to regain his spot in the starting XI next Saturday against Aston Villa. If this comes to fruition, Sakho's value will take a hit as he moves back to a role off the bench.

Sakho is expected to replace the injured Dejan Lovren (groin) in the starting XI for Sunday's match against Arsenal, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Sakho has yet to start this season, as he missed considerable time with a thigh injury, but now that he's fully fit, manager Brendan Rodgers is going to roll the dice with Sakho as part of a three-man back line. It's not a great fantasy matchup, particularly with Brad Jones starting in goal.

Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe said Monday that Sakho is expected to be out for "another couple of weeks" due to his thigh injury.

Sakho hasn't played since Sept. 23 against Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup, but apparently re-injured his thigh during rehab work. Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren will continue to start in the back for the Reds.
