​West Brom manager Pardew reveals Sturridge 'distraught' after another injury

West Brom manager says that his striker Daniel Sturridge is very upset after another injury setback in his career.

Sturridge only joined West Brom on loan at the end of the transfer window, and he is already hurt following the game against Chelsea.

He could only make it through three minutes of the game before he suffered a hamstring injury.

"He was distraught. His personality and the way he's worked has been of the highest order, I couldn't speak higher of him," he said.

"In training he's been really sharp, there's not many strikers can do what he can, a bit like Hazard did, it might have made a difference.

"He's absolutely devastated. It was that first run, maybe it was a bit of adrenalin from a 60m run into the corner."
