The Reds vice-captain has been out of action since picking up a calf strain during Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup third round in January.

I’m not expecting to have either of them back for the weekend

Meanwhile, Sakho, who joined in a £16m deal from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, is still nursing a hamstring problem which he suffered in a 2-1 loss at Chelsea in December.

Liverpool manager Rodgers revealed that Agger and Sakho aren’t “far off” from a return to action but the pair won’t be available to face the Premier League leaders at Anfied.

“Daniel and Mamadou are not far off, but I’m not expecting to have either of them back for the weekend,” Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo.

“They are not back in full training yet. Daniel will be back at some stage next week so he’s progressing really well.

“But Sakho is still a bit away from coming back training.”
