With Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge building a formidable partnership at the front of second-place Liverpool’s attack, one will have to do the work on his own for the forseeable future.

Manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed Sturridge suffered a strain of a foot or ankle ligament and will miss six to eight weeks with the injury.

Sturridge suffered the injury in training Friday. Rodgers said they originally thought it was a toe injury until further testing showed the ligament damage.
