NOT AGAIN…

Daniel Sturridge was expected to take the pitch against Crystal Palace, but after sustaining another injury to his left thigh during training, he’s now out until 2015.

According to Liverpool Echo, Sturridge has suffered 11 separate injuries since joining Liverpool in January 2013; his left thigh being a recurring problem. LFC has played Sturridge in almost 75% of their games, and he’s missed 25% of games due to injury.

COME BACK!

Sturridge has been out since August when he injured his thigh during an England team training session. He then sustained a calf injury in October while training with the club.

The striker’s absence has been felt, the club’s form slump coincides with his injuries. Liverpool’s faithful fans hope a comeback in early 2015 will help put the Reds back on a winning path (fingers crossed).

LFC: WHAT’S HAPPENED TO YOU?

The Reds were almost champions last season. But as they took the pitch on a rainy day at Selhurst Park, Crystal Palace trumped LFC 3–1, giving Liverpool its third consecutive defeat, and it’s been worst start to a season since the Premier League was founded in 1992.

LAMBERT GETS HIS FIRST LIVERPOOL GOAL

Rickie Lambert scored his first goal for Liverpool in the 2nd minute, but that was where the good news ended. Despite dominating possession, the Red’s defense couldn’t contain Crystal Palace as Dwight Gale leveled the game in the 17th minute. Two goals in two minutes from Joe Ledley and Mile Jedinak in the second half sealed the win for Crystal Palace and took them out of the relegation zone.

WHERE DOES LIVERPOOL GO FROM HERE?

LFC Manager Brendan Rodgers admitted his job could be on the line if he can’t make things right.

With striker Mario Balotelli nursing a hamstring problem, and Daniel Sturridge now out until next year after reinjuring his left thigh, Liverpool is lacking fire power out front. The injury-riddled team will be tested in an important Champions League game this week against Bulgaria’s Ludogorets before facing Stoke City on the weekend.

IN EMERGING MARKET COUNTRIES

According to the club’s Facebook page, European soccer-loving nations aren’t Liverpool’s biggest supporters. Their biggest fans are in Asia and South America.

Eight out of the top 10 countries on the list are considered emerging market countries. Thailand had the largest fan base with 3.5 million fans, while Indonesia was second with 2.5 million supporters on the “the Book.”

The UK was the only European country to make the top 10 at number 3, while the United States rounded out the top 10.

WHAT ABOUT CHINA?

Forbes did point out that China, where LFC has a strong following, would most likely have made the top 10, but Facebook is banned there.
