There’s Zero Sympathy on Twitter For Daniel Sturridge After His Latest Injury

Daniel Sturridge was taken off injured for West Brom after a measly three minutes tonight – but there’s very little sympathy for the injury-prone striker on social media.

As you can probably imagine, the folk on Twitter were rather unforgiving about the 28-year-old’s plight:
