Liverpool striker Sturridge: I'm injury prone because of all-action style

Liverpool striker Danny Sturridge says he is susceptible to injury due to his exciting style of play.

The 25-year-old made his first start for Liverpool since August in Tuesday's dramatic win over Tottenham.

"When you are a quick player you are more explosive, you do certain things the way I play," Sturridge said, speaking to BT Sport. "But its part of the game isn't it?

"With the way I play now and how you [Michael Owen] used to play, you make certain runs and are more explosive and do certain things that other people don't and that's what makes us who we are, who you were, and that's just how it is.

"That's football and if I didn't be as explosive as I was I could play and I could be fine and I could not get injured."
