Liverpool have confirmed that Daniel Sturridge has suffered an injury in training and there are fears that the striker could face a long spell on the sidelines.

SkySports are reporting that Sturridge may have damaged his ankle ligaments, the same injury that ruled him out for three months during the summer. 

The former Chelsea man came back from international duty with England last week with a thigh problem and was only fit to come on as a late substitute in last week's Merseyside derby draw with Everton, though he still managed to find the net.

The 24-year-old had been expected to return to the Reds' line-up against Hull City this weekend after returning to full training, however he left the club's training facilities at Melwood on crutches yesterday. 

The Reds released a statement on their website and have attempted to play down fears that his ligaments have been damaged: "Liverpool Football Club can confirm Daniel Sturridge will be assessed by the club's medical staff today after the striker rolled his ankle in training.

"Sturridge returned to training at Melwood this week; however, he sustained an ankle sprain which will require further assessment."

The England star has been a revelation at Anfield Since joining last January for around £12mil and has hit 19 goals from 26 Premier League appearances.

Sturridge has formed a deadly partnership up-front with Luis Suarez this season and the duo's goals have propelled their side to second in the table.
