Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge will be assessed by club officials before learning the extent of a hamstring problem which forced him off in the 3-2 Premier League win over Manchester City.

Sturridge was replaced by Joe Allen on 66 minutes with a hamstring complaint which has dogged his campaign thus far despite scoring 20 league goals this term alongside Luis Suarez.

But the England forward is facing another spell on the side-lines and could miss a portion of Liverpool's final four games of the season which will determine their success at claiming a first league title for 24 years.

Manager Brendan Rodgers said: "We'll see how he is over the next couple of days. He felt a wee bit of tightness in his hamstring, so we'll just see how that is in the next couple of days."

The potential loss of Sturridge comes as a blow to Liverpool who are already without Jose Enrique who appears set to be out until next season after undergoing knee surgery before the New Year.

Along with Sturridge, Liverpool also lost Jordan Henderson after his stoppage time red card from a lunge on Samir Nasri and the England midfielder will miss the games against Norwich City, Chelsea and Crystal Palace.

Henderson and Sturridge have been among the pillars of strength during The Reds' surge to the Premier League summit and their absence comes at an anything but ideal time for Rodgers.

"He [Henderson] has been brilliant," Rodgers added. "That's the only sour point of the game, everybody knows Jordan Henderson. He is one of the most honest players I have ever come across in my life.

"He's a wonderful young man and he's just had a touch late on in the game, probably through a little bit of tiredness.

"Sometimes you watch images like that, slowed down, and it looks really bad. But he actually touches the ball, he is stretching for it and the sole of his foot actually touches the ball. Ok, maybe he caught Nasri, but I felt that was probably a bit harsh.

"It was unfortunate, because he has been brilliant for us."
