London: Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is expected to miss his side's Premier League trip to Hull City on Sunday after the club announced on Saturday that he has sprained his ankle.
The 24-year-old England international, who has scored nine goals this season, sustained the injury in training.
"Liverpool Football Club can confirm Daniel Sturridge will be assessed by the club's medical staff today (Saturday) after the striker rolled his ankle in training," read a statement on the Liverpool website.
"Sturridge returned to training at Melwood this week; however, he sustained an ankle sprain which will require further assessment."
In his last Liverpool appearance, Sturridge came off the bench to score an 89th-minute equaliser in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Everton last weekend.
