Daniel Sturridge injured ahead of Tottenham game - fans react

Published 3 Comments

Jurgen Klopp takes charge of his first game as Liverpool manager today as his side takes on Tottenham Hotspur.

Since his arrival at Anfield last week, the German has had a chance to sample everything the city and club have to offer.

One regularity on Merseyside that Klopp has encountered today is an injury to Daniel Sturridge, who was ruled out of the fixture at White Hart Lane with a swollen knee.

With Christian Benteke and Danny Ings already on the sidelines, the goalscoring burden was expected to fall upon the former Manchester City man.

However, when Klopp's first team sheet as Liverpool manager was released, the England striker was a notable absentee.

Belgian forward Divock Origi was named as the lone forward and social media soon erupted as the news of Sturridge's injury came out. 

Reds fans will be hoping the 26-year-old's issue is nothing too serious, having not long recovered from a hip problem sustained in April.

The former Chelsea man had produced some fine performances since returning to the Liverpool line-up against Norwich - his brace in the 3-2 win against Aston Villa showed he had not lost his goalscoring touch. 

He was left out of Roy Hodgson's England squad for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania in the hope he could avoid any further injuries. 

The extent of his knee problem is yet to be revealed, but it is clear to see that the Birmingham-born striker will have to be wrapped in cotton wool this season. 

Liverpool fans will be hoping the injury is not too serious, as Origi is their only option up front at this moment in time.

Will Daniel Sturridge make over 20 appearances for Liverpool this season? Have your say in the comments section below!
