Skrtel charged by FA

The charge relates??to an incident with David De Gea towards the end of the game where Skrtel appeared to stand on the United keeper???s leg.

If found guilty, the Liverpool defender could face a three-game ban – the same punishment given to Chelsea striker Diego Costa, who was retrospectively found guilty of stamping on Liverpool’s Emre Can during a Capital One Cup clash against Liverpool in January.

A three-game ban would see Skrtel miss Liverpool’s vital Premier League trip to Arsenal on April 4, their FA Cup replay against Blackburn on April 8 and the home game against Newcastle five days later.
