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.
