Sturridge was just days away from returning to action for the first time since August, but pulled out of a training session on Tuesday nursing a thigh problem.

The 25-year-old was originally sidelined after suffering a thigh strain during England training at the start of September.

His expected return at the end of October was delayed after another injury and now Liverpool are waiting upon a fresh scan on his thigh to determine the extent of his absence.

Should the forward face further time out of action, it will come as a devastating blow to Liverpool’s season.

Sturridge had been expected to partner summer signing Mario Balotelli up front for only the second time when the Reds go to Crystal Palace this Sunday in the Premier League.

You’ve got to laugh or you’d cry, Rodgers will really need to earn his keep now because if we play the same way we’ve currently been playing since the last time Sturridge played (Spurs away) we could be edging closer to bottom 4 rather than top.

When it rains it pours. Truly devastating news, when will we see him back? Just emphasises even more how we should have learned how to play as a team without him though.
