As many of us had expected, Martin Skrtel’s injury in yesterdays win against Manchester City has been confirmed as damage to his right knee’s posterior cruciate ligament. Skrtel will see a specialist in the next 24 hours who will determine how long the defender will be out of action for but we should suspect him to be out for several months. This is a massive blow for us as Skrtel had been playing really well alongside Carragher.
This is now time for Agger to step up and reclaim his spot as one of Europe’s top defenders. I have faith in Agger and I know he will do well for us. My only concern now is in the Champions League as Hyypia can not play. If Agger and Carra get injured we could find ourselves short in the back as I suspect Skrtel could be out for the rest of the season.
Get well soon Martin!
