Sakho picked up the clean sheet in Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Tottenham on Sunday.

Sakho got the start replacing the injured Marten Skrtel (knock) and put in an excellent performance alongside Dejan Lovren. After shutting out a formidable opponent it wouldn't be surprising if manager Brendan Rodgers elects to keep the first successful center-back pairing of the season together. With good matchups coming up against Aston Villa and West Ham this could be Sakho's chance to solidify his place in the starting XI.

Sakho was available off the bench Sunday, but did not play in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Southampton.

Sakho looks to be second choice behind Martin Skrtel to start alongside new signing Dejan Lovren. It remains to be seen how manager Brendan Rodgers will rotate his squad once Champions League fixtures start piling on, but for now, Sakho will have to wait for an opportunity to get back on the pitch.

Sakho was included in the squad for Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday.

Sakho hasn't played since late December and with Liverpool recording two clean sheets in their last two matches, Sakho might be eased slowly back onto the pitch, as to not disrupt the current back line's form.

Sakho (hamstring) has returned to training and will be a late fitness test for this weekend's clash with Southampton.

Sakho will most likely slot back into the first team once fit, putting Daniel Agger's playing time in question.

Sakho is expected to remain sidelined for the remainder of the month with a torn tendon, originally reported as a hamstring injury.

Sakho was thought to be a bit behind schedule, but a tendon injury requires more time to heal. Sakho was just beginning to settle into the league before his injury, so he'll look to pickup where he left off upon his return.

Sakho (hamstring) is two to three weeks away from a return to action, according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Sakho had begun to settle in to his role in the Liverpool back line before injuring his hamstring against Chelsea last month. The French defender should slot back into a starting role upon his return.

Manager Brendan Rodgers said he believes Sakho (hamstring) is likely to be available next week against Aston Villa, ESPN FC reports.

Sakho had established himself in the starting lineup for Liverpool before injuring his hamstring, so fantasy owners can expect the French defender to return to that role as soon as he is deemed fit.

Sakho was subbed off in the 90th minute for Kolo Toure after suffering a hamstring injury, according to Henry Winter of the Daily Telegraph.

Sakho has been a consistent starter for Liverpool this season, although he's certainly in jeopardy of missing time with his hamstring injury, especially with their next match coming up Wednesday.
