Liverpool - Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has broken down again with another injury to his left thigh, extending the England international's long spell out of the team.
Sturridge, who has not played since August because of injury, tore a muscle in a training session on Tuesday.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says it is the ninth injury to that thigh over his career "so there is an issue there somewhere."
Liverpool says the club "will launch an investigation into his injury issues."

Sturridge, the second top scorer in the Premier League last season, has been sidelined with two separate thigh injuries as well as a calf problem this season.
Liverpool has struggled in Sturridge's absence, with fellow strikers Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert still without a league goal.
