Ex-Chelsea attacker has been a revelation since joining the Reds in January. 

Liverpool face the prospect of being without key front man Daniel Sturridge for the start of the new season after the player picked up a serious looking ankle injury playing for England against the Republic of Ireland last week, says the Independent.

The in-form England international was stretchered off at Wembley Stadium last Wednesday following a tackle by the visitors’ Glenn Whelan, although initially the injury was not thought to be too serious, with Three Lions head coach Roy Hodgson even predicting that the 23-year-old would only be out of action for as long as “two weeks”.

However, that initial prognosis now seems to have been way wide of the mark after it was revealed that the former Manchester City and Chelsea striker had suffered ankle ligament damage and could face as long as four months out of action.

And if that worst-case scenario were to prove accurate, then the Merseyside giants would face the prospect of being without their key forward, who scored an impressive ten goals in just 16 Premier League matches for the Reds this year, for both pre season, as well as the start of the new campaign.
