"He's coming along nicely. He's got one of those injuries where you're not sure how long it's going to take," coach Mike Marsh told Liverpool's official website.
"He's still getting treatment - with a bit of luck that will improve in the next couple of days and he'll be available for Saturday."
Marsh also confirmed midfielder Joe Allen requires surgery on a shoulder problem - but was unable to confirm when that might take place.
He added: "I think he will need surgery. We'll try to get that out of the way sooner rather than later so he'll be ready for pre-season.
"We'll just see how the rest of the squad is before we commit to that."
