Liverpool deliver latest Daniel Sturridge injury update
Liverpool confirm that Daniel Sturridge has suffered a fresh thigh injury
Liverpool have confirmed that Daniel Sturridge has suffered another thigh injury.
The England striker has not featured since the start of September after initially picking up a thigh problem while on international duty with England and then suffering a calf strain.
The 25-year-old pulled up in training on Tuesday just as he was nearing a return to action, and the Reds confirmed that he is set for another spell on the sidelines after undergoing a scan on Wednesday.
A Liverpool statement read: “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.”
It is understood that Liverpool expect Sturridge to be sidelined for another four to six weeks.
