Martin Skrtel is in a race to play against Manchester United in the Europa league after suffering a broken nose. Incredibly, the defender has been playing with a broken nose for the last two games. He has now decided to undergo surgery, but only just days before the visit to Old Trafford to play against Manchester United.
The Premier League outfit, now managed by Jose Mourinho, will be one of the favourites to win the competition. As the club are currently struggling to achieve consistency in the league, winning the Europa League will be seen as a route to qualify for next year’s Champions League.
