Liverpool Dealt Fresh Injury Blow As Star Ruled Out Until 2016
Liverpool have been handed a fresh injury blow with Daniel Sturridge ruled out until the New Year after suffering a hamstring injury against Newcastle on Sunday
Liverpool have been handed a fresh injury blow with Daniel Sturridge ruled out until the New Year after suffering a hamstring injury against Newcastle United on Sunday, according to the Liverpool Echo.
Sturridge has once again seen his season plagued by a series of injury problems with hip and knee injuries restricting him to just six appearances in all competitions so far this campaign.
He marked his return to fitness with an impressive double during a 6-1 win over Southampton in the Capital One Cup last week and the Reds were hoping the 26-year-old could finally get a run of games under his belt.
However, the Liverpool Echo are one of several media outlets who are reporting today that Sturridge has suffered yet another injury blow after straining his hamstring during his substitute appearance against Newcastle on Sunday.
The paper says scans have shown a strain that is expected to take between three and four weeks to heal meaning Sturridge will now miss Liverpool’s festive fixtures and not return until the New Year.
It’s another crushing blow for the striker and he’s now set to sit out a crucial period that sees Liverpool play West Brom, Watford, Leicester, Sunderland and West Ham in the Premier League while he’ll be in a race against time to feature in the Reds’ Capital One Cup semi-final with Stoke City on January 5th.
Sturridge’s injury woes are now becoming a complete joke and you have to consider how long Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp will put up with him constantly being injured. There’s no denying he’s a world class talent when fit, but it’s no use when Sturridge spends more time on the treatment table than the football pitch.
