Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is second the Premier League with nine goals in 12 games.

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) - Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge could be sidelined for up to eight weeks after spraining his ankle during training earlier this week.

The England forward has scored 11 goals in 14 matches for the Reds this season and his partnership with Luis Suarez has proved decisive in many occasions.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said before Sunday's 3-1 loss at Hull that ''Daniel is probably going to be out six to eight weeks. It's a big blow for us because he's been brilliant since he's come in.''
