Skrtel picked up his eighth clean sheet of the season during the 2-0 victory over Southampton on Sunday.

Skrtel has started in 23 Premier League matches for Liverpool and currently is the squad's most reliable defender when factoring in the totality of the season thus far. He's expected to continue starting moving forward as Liverpool has picked up steam over the last couple of months.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Skrtel scored seven minutes into stoppage time to salvage a 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Sunday.

Skrtel suffered a gash on his head earlier in the second half, and the work by team physios to patch him up ultimately added nine minutes of stoppage time, giving Sktrel enough time to bang home a corner from Adam Lallana to grab a point for the Reds. The goal was his first this season after he bagged a surprising seven last term.

Skrtel returned from a knee injury to start and play all 90 minutes of Liverpool's 3-1 Premier League loss to West Ham on Saturday.

The Liverpool defense has really struggled this season, including giving up seven goals in the three matches that Skrtel has played. It doesn't get much easier, as the Reds will host Everton next Saturday.

Skrtel (knee) has trained all week and is expected to play in Liverpool's Premier League match against West Ham on Saturday.

If he's fully fit, Skrtel should slot right back into the starting XI alongside Dejan Lovren.

Skrtel has been ruled out of Liverpool's Premier League match against Aston Villa on Saturday due to a knee injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Skrtel suffered the injury in Liverpool's last Premier League match, which came against Manchester City on Sept. 1. It's unclear how long he will be out, but Mamadou Sakho will likely replace him in the starting XI.

Skrtel appeared to suffer a knock to his knee during Monday's Premier League match at Manchester City, as his knee collided with City midfielder Yaya Toure on a clearance.

Skrtel could not be subbed off because Liverpool had already used all three, plus Glen Johnson was taken off with a thigh injury, so the Reds were already down to 10 men. He will undergo further tests Tuesday to determine the extent of the injury, although he's certainly iffy to face Tottenham on Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Skrtel managed 20 clearances in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Southampton on Sunday.

Sktrel got the start alongside Dejan Lovren Sunday, and despite missing out on the clean sheet, the Slovakian provided some value to fantasy owners in leagues that score clearances. The veteran defender looks to be firmly entrenched in manager Brendan Rodgers starting XI, and should be viewed as a top-tier fantasy defender this season.

Skrtel put one in the back of his own net in Liverpool's 2-1 victory over Newcastle.

Skrtel's season was a bit of a roller coaster for both Liverpool fans and fantasy owners. While the Slovakian lead all defenders in goals with seven, he also set the Premier League record for most own goals in a season, with four. This production has to looked at as a positive, given the fact that Skrtel's starting role was very much in question through the first few matches of the year. Liverpool will look to address their back line in this summer's transfer market, so it remains to be seen if his starting role will be safe for next season.
