For those of you who missed the opening couple of minutes of Chelsea’s game against West Brom this evening, Daniel Sturridge did actually start for the Baggies against his former employers.
But unfortunately, the England striker lasted less than three minutes before limping off with yet ANOTHER injury.
Yep, that’s right, three minutes.
Sturridge, who joined West Brom on loan from Liverpool at the end of January, was forced off after just one or two touches of the ball.
In what looked like a pretty a routine chase for possession between the 28-year-old and Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta, the striker suddenly slowed to a walk, pulled up and sat awkwardly on the ground, signalling to the Baggies bench.
You’ve gotta feel sorry for him, really.
The crocked striker then stormed off down the tunnel as Jay Rodriguez came on as his replacement.
Rodriguez was then involved instantly when he was put through on goal by Solomon Rondon, only for Cesc Fabregas to dive in on him.
Probably should’ve been a penalty, to be fair, with the midfielder catching Rodriguez and knocking him over.
Keep your eyes on this one, folks.
