Rodgers reveals defender concerns
Brendan Rodgers says there is concern that Daniel Agger may have damaged knee ligaments during the home defeat to Manchester United.
The Danish international gave the ball away in the build up to the penalty for United's second goal, then injuring himself in an attempt to clear the danger on the halfway line. Agger was then taken from the field on a stretcher and replaced by Jamie Carragher, with early concerns that the centre back could be facing time on the sidelines. Liverpool say it is still too early to say how serious the problem is and the medical team will wait for the swelling to go down before they can find out the full extent of the damage. But it is a worry for Rodgers, who admitted: "It didn't look so good with his knee, and some of the medics were saying he may have a problem with his medial ligament, but we'll have to assess that over the next 24 hours and look at it again tomorrow." Agger's representatives are currently in negotiations with Liverpool officials over a new contract, with a four-deal believed to be on the table.
