Daniel Sturridge Could Face Four Months On Sidelines After England Injury: The Nightly EPL

daniel sturridge Daniel Sturridge Could Face Four Months On Sidelines After England Injury: The Nightly EPL

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge could be out of action for four months due to an injury he picked up for England against Ireland on Wednesday.

The worst-case scenario is that Sturridge’s ankle injury could keep him out until the end of September, which will severely impact Liverpool’s strikeforce since Luis Suarez is out suspended until that time.

Liverpool have not yet determined how long Sturridge will be out of action, but the scans do reveal ankle ligament damage. At best, he’ll miss the opening of the new season.

Should Liverpool go out and buy a new striker to boost their start to next season while Sturridge and Suarez are out, or should the Reds try to paper over the cracks with Fabio Borini and a possible loan signing? Share your advice in the comments section below.

  1. Rob says:

    There should be some kind of rule where the club team receives compensation from the international teams for injuries like this. Such a needless game has effected Liverpool greatly, but then again this is a good reason why selling Suarez would make sense; he had a brain then Liverpool wouldn’t be in such a mess

  2. brn442 says:

    Didn’t they just buy a striker? They needed to bring in another one anyway.

    Borini looks too lightweight to be effective in the Premier League.

    Needless? Rob, as opposed to Liverpool’s tour of Australia? It’s frustrating but injuries happen. Sturridge could have blown out his knee with Liverpool then. If its going to happen, It’s gonna happen.

    • Rob says:

      I agree, the tour of Australia is needless too; I’m just sick of hearing that we play too much football then two England games are scheduled during the summer break.

  3. Matt says:

    The sound you hear is Brendan Rodgers breaking things.

    Or he’s putting three more names in envelopes…

  4. M Owen says:

    Thank Roy for screwing us over again even you are not managing LFC.

  5. Marc L says:

    Shame to see that happen. Good kid – seems like he gets derailed by injury every time he looks set to break out. Scored an awful lot of goals for Liverpool in relatively few appearances this year.
