Martin Skrtel fires warning shot at rivals

The Liverpool centre back says that the Reds are now looking to take the title assault to the hopefuls.

Following another clean sheet at Arsenal on Monday night in a 0-0 draw, Marten Skrtel has fired a warning for the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United by saying that the Merseyside giants are not afraid of any team in the league as the Reds seek to win their first ever Premier League title.

“It really was a game of two halves,” Skrtel told the Liverpool Echo .

“In the first half we were better than them [Arsenal]. We hit the crossbar, we hit the post and their keeper [PetrCech] made some great saves.

“But in the second half they kept the ball better and created some chances, but we defended well and I’m glad they didn’t score.

“Maybe both teams can be happy with a point. We wanted to win the game but at the end of the day we kept a clean sheet and if you can’t win, it’s important not to lose the game.

“It’s always difficult to come to places like this but we arrived with confidence after two wins. We wanted to get something to keep the run going and I think we can be happy with the way we played.

“We showed we can compete with anyone in this league, whether it’s away or home. We just have to keep going and keep building on this run.”
