Liverpool say Sturridge could be out until New Year

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge could be sidelined until the new year after his latest injury setback.

Sturridge has not played for his club since August 31 as he strained a calf on his return to training after recovery from his initial thigh injury, but he was in line to feature at Crystal Palace this weekend.

It's though this new setback could mean he is out until 2015.

"Liverpool Football Club today confirmed scans have revealed Daniel Sturridge has sustained a new thigh injury," said a statement from the club.

"The player will remain unavailable for selection but will be monitored and assessed during his recovery."
