Blow As Liverpool Star Raheem Sterling Is Ruled Out Of Crucial Clash Against Spurs

Sterling has been in impressive form for Liverpool in recent weeks.

Raheem Sterling has been ruled out of Tuesday night’s crucial clash against fellow top four hopefuls Tottenham Hotspur in what has been described as ‘a knock’, according to Ben Smith from BBC Sport.

Brendan Rodgers had previously suggested that the forward was a doubt for the encounter, but this will come as a blow for Liverpool in a fixture they need to win to keep in touch with Spurs.

This news may mean a first start since August for Daniel Sturridge, seeing as Sterling was occupying the central striking role in the former Chelsea man’s absence.

With Sterling involved in touchy contractual negotiation, this injury couldn’t have come at a more inconvenient time.
