Liverpool defender Sakho sweating on the results of knee scan at Palace

Crystal Palace boss Sam Allardyce is hoping Mamadou Sakho did not sustain cruciate ligament damage during the Premier League home defeat to Tottenham on Wednesday. Sakho suffered the injury in a challenge on Tottenham striker Harry Kane and had to be substituted. The French defender will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the injury.

Allardyce is hopeful that the injury is not too serious. “We’re unable to say what the extent of the injury is at the moment, but it didn’t look too clever with the way the knee hyper-extended,” Allardyce told reporters on Thursday.

“I don’t want to speculate regarding what it is or isn’t, but it didn’t look too good the way the knee twisted. We hope it’s not the cruciate. It could be medial or lateral, but it was certainly a hyperextension of the knee. We will see after a scan.

“The scan will give us an indication of the seriousness of the injury and then we will speak to Liverpool. I would like to think it is not that serious, and that he will get back before the end of the season, but I am not sure.”

With Sakho’s loan deal expiring at the end of the season, the France international might have played his last game for Palace.
