Skrtel suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury and his return will be delayed by another two or three weeks, manager Jurgen Klopp said Friday.

Skrtel suffered the injury back on Dec. 20, and his continued absence will allow Dejan Lovren to continue lining up with Mamadou Sakho in central defense.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Skrtel is still a few weeks away from returning from his current hamstring injury.

The Slovakian has been out since late December because of the injury, which also included a tendon tear, and he will seemingly be hard-pressed to return during the month of January. Fellow first-choice center back Dejan Lovren is also currently out with an injury, likely leaving Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho to start against Arsenal on Wednesday.

Skrtel announced on Instagram Tuesday that he will be out for six weeks because of a hamstring and tendon tear.

Skrtel suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday's match against Watford and had to be subbed off. The injury is a big hit to the Reds, who have Mamadou Sakho, who just returned from his own knee injury, and Dejan Lovren, who is battling a knee issue of his own. Kolo Toure is also an option, albeit a long one.

Skrtel was substituted off in the first half of Sunday's match against Watford after picking up a knock during a challenge by Troy Deeney, the Liverpool Echo reports.

An absence for Skrtel would be a huge blow to Liverpool, who are already with Dejan Lovren (knee), while Mamadou Sakho just returned from his own ailment. Kolo Toure could move into the starting lineup if Skrtel has to miss any additional time.

Skrtel scored an own goal in Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United.

Skrtel was unlucky to have put the ball in the back of his own net, putting his leg in to block Georginio Wijnaldum's cross that redirected into the goal. Despite the mistake, he's still one of the better center backs in all of the Premier League.

Skrtel (illness) is starting Sunday against West Brom.

Skrtel was held out of Thursday's Europa League match due to the ailment, but it was never expected to be a long-term issue and he'll start alongside Dejan Lovren against a struggling Swans side.
