Liverpool ace set to be ruled out for the season

Skrtel had to be carried off on a stretcher during the win at Mancehster City yesterday.

“Martin underwent a scan this morning (Monday) which showed damage to the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee,” said club spokesman Ian Cotton told the club’s official website.

“He will see a specialist tomorrow to assess the extent of the injury and will then have an accurate idea of the timescales involved before he is back playing again.”
