Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers certainly has a selection headache when it comes to his options at centre back but one man who appears to be a mainstay at present is Martin Skrtel.
Skrtel has started every game since his man of the match performance in the 1-0 win over Manchester United a month ago, and it’s easy to see why from this training ground snap.
Martin Skrtel could in fact be a Jedi. It seems to be the only logical explanation to explain how he could knock over Mamadou Sakho of all people with no contact.
It seems the Slovakian – who may have departed Anfield in the summer – is so happy with being a first choice these days that he won’t let anybody stand in his way, notably new signing Sakho, who he has unleashed his special powers upon!
Even with the likes of Sakho, Kolo Toure and Daniel Agger at his disposal, Rodgers seems to be sticking with Skrtel for now.
How could you leave out a player with Jedi powers after all?
