Martin Skrtel was proud of his shock double in Liverpool's thrashing of Arsenal.

The last time Liverpool put five past Arsenal, in April 1964, they won the league to give Bill Shankly his first title.

"It (scoring) doesn't happen very often but I got two and I am very happy for that and I'm happy I helped the team win the match," said Skrtel.

"The last time I scored two was when I was very young but never in senior football. I couldn't believe it.

"I've scored 13 goals for Liverpool and 90 per cent have been from a cross from Stevie (Gerrard)."
