Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is eager to avoid comparisons today with Manchester United rival Nemanja Vidic.

Both players came from Russian football to the Premiership, but Skrtel told "I think as far comparisons are concerned you would have to ask the manager or specialists.

"I cannot say who I am like myself. I wouldn't really wish to compare myself with anyone. I want to be a unique player. I want to known for being me.

"I know that I am a physical player and I know the game in England is very physical so I think it suits me in that respect. At the beginning, immediately after the transfer, I found things hard, but now I feel I have settled in. I don't really have any problems now."
