Liverpool duo Alberto Moreno and Mamadou Sakho look relaxed ahead of Liverpool's clash against Arsenal on Wednesday night
Mamadou Sakho and Alberto Moreno looked relaxed despite the imminent arrival of Premier League leaders Arsenal ahead of Wednesday night’s clash at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s injury-ravaged Liverpool side host the Gunners as the Reds look to make a return to winning ways in the Premier League after a 2-0 loss to West Ham United last time out.
Liverpool are currently without centre-halves Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren, whilst Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho and England striker Daniel Sturridge are also sidelined.
However, Sakho, who missed Liverpool’s last two games due to a knee injury, appears to be in contention to face the Reds if his latest Snapchat post is a clue to his improving fitness.
Sakho’s caption read: “Before the game tonight with my team-mate’s lads”
Sakho has already missed a large chunk of the season through injury after the former Paris Saint-Germain defender sustained a nasty knee problem during a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace in November.
The France centre-half has made 11 Premier League appearances so far this season, partnering both Dejan Lovren and Martin Skrtel in the heart of Jurgen Klopp’s defence.
Sakho moved to Liverpool in a £16m deal from Ligue 1 champions PSG in the summer of 2013.
