Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has been ruled out of action till February after he confirmed that he will be sidelined for six weeks thus ruling him out of the big Premier League clash between Liverpool and Arsenal on the 13th of January, 2016 at Anfield. Some reports are already claiming the player could be out for the rest of the season which will be a big blow to Liverpool especially as Kolo Toure isn’t the most reliable CB in the Premier League and rightly so considering his age.
Skrtel, 31, limped off during Sunday’s 3-0 league defeat at Watford after seeing 41 minutes of action and thereafter confirmed the news through an Instagram post from his account stating that he had suffered a tear in his hamstring and tendon.
The Slovakian defensive stalwart wrote: “I will work hard on my recovery and will do everything to come back as soon as possible and even stronger than before.”
Skrtel’s injury comes as a big blow to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp as he attempts to comprehend the Watford defeat, which made it 2 successive league defeats and just one point from the last 9 available for his team.
