Martin Skrtel "happy" to be playing regularly at Liverpool

Martin Skrtel insists that he will stay on top of his game in order to keep his first-team spot at Liverpool.

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has revealed that he feels more positive this season due to his regular position in the first team.

The Slovakian dropped down the pecking order under manager Brendan Rodgers last season, but made his seventh successive start in the Reds' 2-2 draw with Newcastle United last Saturday.

"After last season when I couldn't get into the team, this season has been very different so far," Skrtel told the Liverpool Echo.

"I am very happy. I am playing every game and trying to do my best for the team. Now I have to try to stay in the starting XI. It's up to me to keep proving to the manager that I deserve a place."

Skrtel has been forming a back three alongside Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure in recent fixtures.
