Martin Skrtel’s return from his hamstring injury has been a bit of a disaster so far.
During Liverpool’s last game our long-serving centre-back came on at half-time, conceded a penalty and played a part in his side conceding three and throwing away a 2-0 lead. It was a shocking individual performance, but he’s backed it up with another for Slovakia against Martin O’Neil’s Ireland.
Skrtel foolishly hacked Shane Long and conceded a penalty which James McLean converted for the Euro 2016 qualifiers.
Surely against Tottenham at the weekend Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren must be automatic selections?
Skrtel is proving himself a liability while the other two were mostly faultless during his time on the sidelines.
