Daniel Sturridge was to be counted on to be the leading offensive force this season.
Liverpool, England (SportsNetwork.com) -
Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge has suffered another setback in his quest to return from injury as the England international injured his thigh in training and will miss up to six more weeks of action.
Sturridge, 25, was to be counted on by manager Brendan Rodgers to be the leading offensive force this season in the absence of Luis Suarez, who was sold to Barcelona, but Sturridge's season has been marred by injury.
The initial injury bug struck back in August while on international duty when he suffered a thigh strain in training. He appeared to be on track to return to the Liverpool starting 11 in October, but was sidelined by a calf problem.
