Liverpool’s Sturridge injured again
Liverpool striker, Daniel Sturridge, has suffered a fresh thigh injury and may only be available for selection again in the New Year.
Sturridge sustained his initial thigh injury while on international duty in August and has not played for the Red’s since then.
He returned to training after his four-week recovery and then sustained a calf injury whilst training in October, which put him out of the game for another six weeks.
Earlier this month, he started training with Liverpool and said that he was recovering well, however he tore the same thigh muscle during this week’s training.
"Liverpool Football Club today confirmed scans have revealed Daniel Sturridge has sustained a new thigh injury.
"The player will remain unavailable for selection but will be monitored and assessed during his recovery."
Liverpool has only won five games this season, two of them being in the Barclays Premier League cup, and has lost seven without Sturridge - their star striker.
Fellow Liverpool striker, Divock Origi, has been on loan to Lille OSC since July this year and will remain with the club for a year.
However, Red’s coach, Brenden Rodgers, has requested the return of Origi during the January transfer window to help Liverpool improve their game in the Premier League.
Lille has said that Origi can re-join Liverpool earlier than planned, if the Red’s pay a premium of £5 million.
