Liverpool veteran Steven Gerrard had earlier been sent off for a stamp on Ander Herrera, the club captain being red carded within a minute of coming on as a half-time sub, and it’s likely Skrtel could receive a sizable ban for his actions.
The Slovakian has until Tuesday at 6pm to respond to the charge, but as is always the case those on Twitter have already their say on the matter:
Sound. So it looks like Skrtel will get a 3 match ban. Awful day that yesterday for many reasons. #LFC

If Skrtel gets banned that’s all we need with Giroud & Gestede especially coming up! — Disco Dancin (@DavidHanson11) March 23, 2015
Skrtel. Won’t have to worry about a stone Cold Steve Austin scoring the equalizer at the Emirates next game…
