Skrtel shows off head injury

Martin Skrtel has posted a graphic picture online of his head wound which he sustained during Liverpool's 2-2 draw against Arsenal.

The Reds defender shared the photograph on his Instagram page. It shows seven metal staples which have been inserted into the cut.

"Disappointed with the result but happy to score that late goal and help the team to get at least a point," he wrote.

Skrtel had treatment after being caught by Olivier Giroud's boot, which contributed to nine minutes of injury time.

And in the seventh of those Skrtel, his injury heavily strapped, powerfully headed in Liverpool's equaliser.
