Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says Martin Skrtel's achievement of playing every minute of the Barclays Premier League season is fantastic.

The Slovakian defender and Everton's Leighton Baines reached the milestone after their respective matches last weekend.

And Carragher says the 26-year-old's achievement is remarkable given the position he plays.

"It's a fantastic achievement by Martin," Carragher said.


"It's very difficult to play every match the way the modern game is with big squads and rotation.

"There's also the intensity of the games and how many knocks you can get.

"I was hoping that Leighton Baines would maybe get a slight knock on Sunday so he would have to come off and Martin could have the record to himself.

"But it's still great for him."
