Brendan Rodgers: Daniel Sturridge is as down as I've seen anyone


Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says the weekend game against Crystal Palace should not be taken lightly.

The Reds are struggling in 11th place in the English Premier League and will be without striker Daniel Sturridge who will be sidelined for six weeks after suffering a new thigh injury earlier this week.

"It will be equally as tough against Palace this season," Rodgers said on Friday.

"Neil Warnock is a wonderful manager with big experience. We will look to start off an exciting run of games with a win.

"Daniel [Sturridge] has just been extremely unfortunate. He's a player who doesn't want to be out for this period of time with the quality he has.

"I spoke to Daniel at length and he's as down as I've seen anyone. We need to go away and find answers so he can perform consistently.

"He looked very, very good in training, but one strike of the ball caused the issue. It was a slight tear of the same thigh he's had problems with before. It's unfortunate for both Daniel and us.

"I have great trust in them [my strikers]. I would be more concerned if they were moping around or didn't care.

"They [Lambert and Borini] are working tirelessly despite not getting much playing time. Rickie is a player with great qualities who can give us something different.

"I expect Jordan [Henderson] to be fit for Sunday's game. He is fine. Mario [Balotelli] will be assessed before the match."
