LIVERPOOL - Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel suffered posterior cruciate ligament damage in his right knee during his side's 3-2 win over Manchester City, the Premier League club confirmed on Monday.

Skrtel, 23, was stretchered off with his leg heavily strapped after falling awkwardly in a challenge with Ched Evans in the second half at Eastlands on Sunday.

Scans revealed that the Slovakian centre-back has damaged the knee ligament and he will have further tests to determine the length of his absence, likely to be several months.

"Martin underwent a scan this morning which showed damage to the posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee," club spokesman Ian Cotton said. "He will see a specialist on Tuesday to assess the extent of the injury and will then have an accurate idea of the time scales involved.
