Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has criticised his side’s performance in the 0-0 draw with Swansea at the weekend, and admits his side need to improve if they are to challenge for Champions League qualification.
A toothless showing resulted in stalemate against the newly promoted Welsh team on Saturday, in what has been an inconsistent campaign thus-far for Kenny Dalglish’s men.
The Denmark international feels that the Anfield outfit lacked direction, and need to get better.
“Sometimes we looked like headless chickens running around after the ball,” Agger told The Guardian.
“It is far from good enough. Everyone was angry and disappointed – some more than others – but that is the way it is.
“If we play like this, we won’t do it [qualify for the Champions League].
“We have got to move up a level or two. I won’t say it is not possible, because it is, but it is up to the players. We are the only ones who can make a difference. We definitely have to do a lot better,” the Scandinavian admitted.
Liverpool travel to take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next Sunday, in what should be a real test to the Merseysiders’ top four aspirations.
