Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge will miss the start of the 2015/16 Premier League season and is likely to return in September. The England international has struggled all season with injury missing over four months of the campaign.

"We are hopeful the issues he's had have been resolved," said Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

"We're anticipating it's going to be around September before he can actually start training and then it's about getting his fitness up."

Sturridge nightmare 

The 25-year-old had surgery stateside on Tuesday on a hip injury that will keep him out for four months. Missing all of Liverpool's pre-season means Rodgers will have to ease the striker back into first team action, and so we may not see the England international until October.

Daniel Sturridge was prolific last season scoring 22 goals in the Premier League contributing greatly to Liverpool's title tilt. This term has been frustrating for Sturridge playing 18 games scoring only five and missing out on all of Liverpool's Champions League campaign.

Striker Struggles 

The Reds have really struggled for goals this season hitting the net only 50 times in the Premier League - 27 less than top goal scorers Manchester City. Liverpool new boys Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli have failed to sparkle this term only adding three goals to the Merseyside club's meagre total.

Returning striker Fabio Borini has also failed to impress, scoring only one goal all season. The Italian forward was key to Sunderland's survival last term netting four goals in the last five games.

Liverpool boss Rodgers will have to either rely on returning Lille loanee Divock Origi for goals or dip his toe in the transfer market for a new hitman. It is unlikely Rodgers will rely on his current crop of misfits possibly selling all three of the above mentioned flops.

Liverpool fans, who do you want your club to get in the summer to solve your goal scoring issues?
