Kolo Toure make record of not facing a loss in last Premier League Season

Former Arsenal defender Kolo Toure is one of the few players to have gone to an entire Premier League season without defeat.

The famous 2003-04 team of Arsenal is popularly known as the Invincibles as result of staying unbeaten throughout the 38 game season. This is not only occurrence in recent history when an English team has achieved this feat. There have been several teams that have started the league campaign without a defeat. Manchester City are one of the most recent teams to have gone past the 10 match mark without defeat.

Martin Skrtel discloses threat from Diego Costa

Liverpool come up against Chelsea this weekend hoping to get revenge for the 2-0 defeat suffered last season.

This defeat had more than just three points lost for Liverpool, as it ultimately saw the club lose the Premier League title as well. Liverpool do not appear to have recovered from this disappointment, as their form has plummeted since then. They come into the weekend after suffering two consecutive defeats. The shock 1-0 defeat against Newcastle was followed by a loss with the same score line against Real Madrid. Ahead of the match with Chelsea, defender Martin Skrtel has spoken about the threat posed by Chelsea striker Diego Costa.

Skrtel Calls For Liverpool To Perform

Martin Skrtel has called for Liverpool to defend as a team as they hope to improve on their second place finish last season. The Slovakian international was part of the defence that conceded 50 goals last season. This was one of the worst defensive records in the entire English top division, but Liverpool were saved because of their strikers. The likes of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge scored loads of goals to see Liverpool finish only behind City after a marathon season. Pundits argue that this season will be even tougher for Liverpool since they will have to contend with Champions League football.

Skrtel Claims Club Must Start Now

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has claimed that the club must start performing from the pre-season in order to lay the foundations for a good campaign. After finishing second last season, Liverpool will be hoping to win the Premier League this time around. However, it will be extremely tough given that they will also have to contend with European matches of the midweek. Last season, they only had to concentrate on the league. Skrtel says that Liverpool need to hit the ground running from the pre-season if they are to overcome this challenge.

Skrtel Pivotal To Liverpool Strong Finish

Liverpool returned to the Champions League, which is a major source of delight for the club and the city after having been without this premier European competition since 2009. Martin Skrtel was a major reason towards Liverpool finishing second in the Premier League. The Slovakian defender was close to an exit last summer, but he decided to stay at the last moment. He has been impressive last season and that is likely to cement his place in the first team for the upcoming campaign. Even though there has been some disappointment that they failed to win the title, Skrtel regards it as a successful season for the club.

Carragher Claims Liverpool Centre Back is Weak

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has sensationally claimed that Liverpool centre back partnership of Martin Skrtel and Mamadou Sakho are weak in a mental sense. The club managed to slip out of the title race in the most extraordinary fashion after conceding three goals in the space of 10 minutes against Crystal Palace. Coming into the match against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, Liverpool had the opportunity to go one step closer to the title.

SKRTEL READY FOR RUN-IN

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel, who has been enjoying a breakthrough season in terms of scoring, says that the Reds are now ready to compete with Manchester city for the title this season.

Skrtel came close to leaving the club in the summer, but he will now be very happy with the decision to stay at Anfield, as they are in the process of creating history. Liverpool were one of the teams to fear during the late 1980s, but they have fallen from grace spectacularly over the last few decades. However, the team could be set for the first league title in more than 20 years.

SPIRIT HELPS TEAM WIN

Liverpool’s victories against Cardiff City, Manchester United and Southampton see them going through a fine form in the Premier League which keeps them fighting for the top spot of the English league along with Manchester City and Chelsea.

Not only have they been picking up positive results but the scoreboard at the end of the matches are proof of just how much they want to win the title as well as getting a Champions League spot for the upcoming season.
A 6-3 triumph against Cardiff City and a 3-0 win over Manchester United is keeping the team spirit of Liverpool alive as they want to finish the remaining matches of the Premier League on a high note.

Skrtel ecstatic after the 5-1 victory

Martin Skrtel said that the opening 20 minutes which Liverpool played against Arsenal in the weekend is one of the best openings which he has ever been involved in. The Merseyside team demolished Arsenal 5-1 at Anfield as Liverpool scored 4 goals in the first 20 minutes with Martin Skrtel scoring the opener from a Steven Gerrard free kick. Brendan Rodgers the Liverpool manager hailed Martin Skrtel as one of the greatest defenders in the world after his fine display in the match against Arsenal. Skrtel managed to find the net twice in the match and both came from set pieces inside the first ten minutes. Liverpool could have easily made it six or seven had they not missed some easy chances.

VITAL DEFENDER

Martin Skrtel has been at Liverpool since the last 5 and half years and according to him, he has enjoyed each and every moment that he has spent at the club.

The 29 years old centre back has played under a total of 4 managers at Anfield and has had a fine tuning with each and every one of them.

Skrtel has never been out of form for a long period of time during his tenure at Liverpool. Yes, he has had a few bad days, but, that happens with every footballer. On more occasions than not, he has left the ground with his head held high.

In the ongoing season too, the Czechoslovakian is proving to be a vital part of Liverpool’s defence.
