The number of injuries Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge has had is ridiculous

The number of injuries the Liverpool striker has suffered really is astonishing.

There are some footballers who manage to get themselves a reputation for being a bit injury prone and sometimes they might not quite warrant the label.

However, there are some players who really, really do deserve the label – like Liverpool's absolute crock of a striker, Daniel Sturridge.

Now, no one is doubting that the forward – when fit – can be one of the most deadly strikers in the Premier League. Unfortunately for him and Liverpool fans alike, he has barely been fit over the past two seasons and seems to keep getting injuries and niggles that keep him out for ages.

The 26-year-old has only managed to play 17 games in the Premier League over the past season and a half. He's injured that much that we reckon some fans will have probably forgotten that he still plays for them!

But just how many times has Sturridge been injured since the start of his career? Well, this great graphic shows the extent of the Liverpool forward's time in the physio room and it is pretty astonishing.

Good lord! C'mon Daniel sort it out and stay fit for longer than five minutes.
