Mamadou Sakho appeared in high spirits as the Liverpool defender trained on Friday as the rest of his team-mates prepare for FA Cup on Friday night.

The France international is currently nursing a knee injury which the defender aggravated after last weekend’s 2-0 loss to West Ham United at Upton Park.

Sakho has already missed most 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.

However, the 25-year-old was eyeing a comeback on Friday afternoon after he posted a selfie in Melwood training ground before presumably a session in the swimming pool.

Sakho wrote: “At training”

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.
