One positive... Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Daniel Sturridge's latest injury

Daniel Sturridge Liverpool

Liverpool fans are hoping Jurgen Klopp will now splash the cash in January.

Can you believe it? Well yes actually, Daniel Sturridge is injured once again.

The BBC report the Liverpool striker has been ruled out of action for a few weeks until January after suffering yet another hamstring injury.

Sturridge reportedly picked up the injury during his substitute appearance at the weekend in the 2-0 defeat at Newcastle, making the game look even more disastrous.

The England international had only just recovered from injury issues which kept him out of much of the early part of the season, and severely disrupted his 2014/15 campaign.

He led the line impressively last week in a 6-1 demolition of Southampton in the Capital One Cup quarter-final.

It is that flash of his ability which makes the repeated injury setbacks even more disappointing for fans to continually endure.

He has played in just five Premier League games this season for the Reds, and it would be a big ask for him to even reach 20 the way it is going.

Liverpool supporters reacted with typical dismay to the news that the former Chelsea and Manchester City striker is back on the treatment table.

There was one positive suggested however, and that is the possibility and surely now inevitability that new manager Jurgen Klopp will sign a new striker in January.

Christian Benteke is yet to win over fans, while Divock Origi is still a raw talent, and Danny Ings has been ruled out for the season with a knee injury.
