Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge insists his injury problems could be hereditary. The 25-year-old striker has featured in just three games for Liverpool this season, after scoring 21 goals last season. Sturridge has been sidelined since September 3 and he hopes to return mid-Novermber. 

Sturridge injured himself during international duty and was hoping to return last month, but the striker injured himself again during training at Melwood. Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert have failed to score goals in the Premier League this season and Liverpool will be hoping to get back Sturridge on the pitch as soon as possible.

Speaking to Talksport, Sturridge said:“I play my game as best I can, but I’ve been unfortunate this season.

“Maybe it’s my body type, maybe it’s hereditary. Both my uncles had injuries, and my dad had them as well. Maybe it’s the Caribbean vibes, maybe I have speed but maybe it makes you more vulnerable because of the fast twitch muscles and the speed in which you’re moving.

“I am vulnerable to muscle injuries. As long as I continue to work hard everything will take care of itself.”

Sturridge will be hoping to play some part against Chelsea on November 8 at Anfield. Sturridge also talked about his relationship with controversial striker Mario Balotelli.

“We get on well off the field and in the changing rooms,” Sturridge said.

“We’re always laughing and joking. It’s not hugely important to be friends to have a great [football] relationship with somebody, and if you’re not friends you can still have a great partnership, but you can also be friends and have a great partnership.

“Once I get back fit I’m hoping we can strike up a partnership. Last season with Luis [Suárez] we had a great relationship up front and scored a lot of goals. Hopefully this season it will be the same.”
