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.
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).
