The France international hasn’t featured for the Reds since picking up a hamstring injury in Liverpool’s 2-1 loss to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 29 December.
He [Sakho] looks fine to be in the squad for the weekend
However, Reds boss Rodgers is confident the 23-year-old, who joined in a £16m deal from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, will be in his Reds squad for this weekend’s clash.
“We have players starting to come back – Stevie is back, Dan was training this week, Sakho trained today,” Rodgers told his pre-match media conference.
“He [Sakho] looks fine to be in the squad for the weekend. Jon [Flanagan] needs some time to heal, Jose [Enrique] is still out for a bit.
“A couple of wee niggles that we’ll have to look at over in the next 24 hours, but we’ll have one or two back.”
Rodgers confirmed that Liverpool vice-captain Daniel Agger is looking at a spell of three to four weeks on the sidelines after suffering a calf injury during their 2-0 victory over Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup on Sunday.
The Reds boss added: “Dan will be three to four weeks. He’s picked up calf problem.”
