A Martin Skrtel lookalike appears to be working at Anfield

You can hold onto those jokes about him probably being a better defender too.

Martin Skrtel’s time at Anfield is likely to be brought to an end this summer.

The Slovakia captain has played less than impressively under Jurgen Klopp this season, to put it mildly.

His lowest point probably came as Lucas was preferred to him at centre-half last week in the win over Bournemouth, even if he was carrying a slight groin injury, and we don’t think we’ll ever forget his game-changing blunders in the 3-2 loss to Southampton.

The centre-half wasn’t even named on the bench for this midweek Merseyside derby against Everton, but it appears he still snuck into Anfield.

An eagle-eyed fan spotted this pitch side steward who, it has to be said, bears an uncanny resemblance to the centre-half.

If he had played, would anyone have even noticed, considering Everton didn’t even manage a shot on target?
