Discussions about a new contract for Skrtel have stalled over a clause in the new agreement about the number of games the defender must play, reports the Daily Mail.

Liverpool was hopeful of completing the new deal before the end of the season, however Skrtel is not apparently ready to agree to the number of matches he must play in to earn his full salary. The new contract is thought to be a three-year deal with another 12-month option.

Skrtel has served his three-match ban for stomping on Manchester United's David de Gea during their match on March 22, and he is expected to play in Sunday's FA Cup semifinal against Aston Villa.

Skrtel has made four FA Cup starts for manager Brendan Rodgers this season and Skrtel is definitely expected to continue that trend Sunday. The 30-year-old only recorded 10 minutes on the pitch during his last FA Cup match against Blackburn, although it would be surprising if Skrtel wasn't on the pitch for the majority of the tilt against Aston Villa.

Skrtel denied the FA's charge of violent conduct against him for an incident at the end of Sunday's 2-1 loss to Manchester United, reports Sky Sports.

The FA will hear the defender's appeal that contact between he and David de Gea was accidental. If found guilty Skrtel could face up to a three-match ban.

Skrtel suffered a head injury during Sunday's FA Cup match against Blackburn Rovers and he was stretchered off the field while wearing a neck brace, but manager Brendan Rodgers said after the match that the injury is not serious.

It was a pretty scary moment with Skrtel being attended to on the ground after the incident, and while Rodgers noted that he was taken to the hospital for evaluation, he is likely not out for a considerable time.

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.

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.
