Not Again: 'Fantastic' £30m star suffers 16th Liverpool injury; missed training sessions this week

With Liverpool currently in the midst of a growing injury crisis, it's heartening to know that Klopp can rely on Daniel Sturridge in the club's hour of need. Oh, wait...

According to the Liverpool Echo:

"Daniel Sturridge is a doubt for the clash with Crystal Palace at Anfield on Sunday. Sturridge has sat out several training sessions at Melwood and the ECHO understands a decision on his availability will be left until tomorrow".

Sturridge's injury issues are now entering the realm of parody.

If this is another injury, then it is striker's 15th since signing for Liverpool, and in that time, he's spent over 470 days on the sidelines, and missed close to 90 games in the process.

Things are never going to change, and although I'm a massive fan of Sturridge, the time has come to cut him loose, and let some other team deal with his endless injury problems.

Ability is not in question - when fully fit, and playing regularly, Sturridge is one Europe's best strikers, but unfortunately, he cannot be relied on, and that's the biggest issue.

If Sturridge can't maintain his fitness after playing just 30 minutes of football, then there's a serious problem somewhere.
