Some good news to come out of Anfield today with regards to the injury Martin Skrtel sustained in the victory against Manchester City. Skrtel saw a specialist today and he confirmed that the defender does not need surgery on his knee. This means that Martin could be back in action by Christmas which is excellent news for us. I had thought initially that Skrtel would be out for the rest of the season or at the earliest be back by Easter but now hopefully by Christmas we will see the ‘big man’ back. I am sure he will undergo serious rehab and will not be rushed back into action and he aggravates the injury.
This is some good news to spice up the day at a time where not much is happening as we look ahead to the international break.
