Liverpool: Daniel Sturridge down about injury - Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says Daniel Sturridge is as "down as I've ever seen him" following news that the striker will be out until the new year with a fresh thigh injury.

The 25-year-old injured his thigh in training on Tuesday and scans show a different problem to the ones that have limited him to three games this season.

"He's a player who doesn't want to be out for this length of time. He wants to play football," said Rodgers.
