DANIEL STURRIDGE has broken down in training once again dealing a massive blow to Liverpool’s hopes of reviving their spluttering season.
The England striker pulled out of a session yesterday with what is understood to be another thigh injury just as he was planning to make his comeback against Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Sturridge, 25, has been sidelined for the past 10 weeks and has now twice broken down in training while readying himself for a long-awaited return to action.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will anxiously await an assessment of the injury in the next 48-hours, but it is too early to say how long Sturridge faces out once more.
The forward’s season has seen him lurch from injury to injury ever since he broke down with an initial thigh problem while training for England at the start of September.
