Cissokho is sidelined after just two matches.
Aly Cissokho was one of three Liverpool players forced off with injury in the mid-week League Cup match with Notts County and now the full-back will be out for six weeks.

The 25-year-old joined the Reds on-loan from Valencia earlier this month, with the view to a permanent transfer in 12 months time.
This will therefore come as blow to Cissokho, who has played just two matches for the club since joining.
Manager Brendan Rodgers had been seeking to sign a left-back all summer as Jose Enrique was the only option in the position and Glen Johnson was forced to fill in for some of last term.
Cissokho arrived with great promise, having spent a year with Los Che since joining from Olympique Lyon and playing 36 matches for the club in all competitions.
There is slightly better news for Rodgers for another injured defender however, as despite Kolo Toure’s knock against Notts looking like perhaps the most serious, the centre-back could be fit to face Manchester United on Sunday.
Toure has been something of a revelation since arriving at Anfield on a free transfer this campaign, as although many thought the 32-year-old was past his best, the Ivorian’s performances has seen the club keep two clean-sheets in two Premier League ties so far.
Rodgers is still looking to strengthen Liverpool’s defence further before the window shuts on September 2, with either Tiago Ilori of Sporting Lisbon or Paris Saint-Germain’s Mamadou Sakho the most likely arrivals.
