Daniel Agger

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger

Liverpool have always relied upon having a foundation to any potential success they may have with their defence, even if they struggle to finish the chances presented to them at the other end.

Daniel Agger is certainly at the heart of this and the Liverpool back-line, especially now Jamie Carragher has departed. His heading prowess makes him a rock on set pieces in defence. On the flip side of the coin, he is also a threat from corners and free kicks when the Merseysiders are on the attack proven by his 3 goals last season, 2 of which were headers. Only 2.5% competitors selected him for their team for the majority of last season, so he could be an astute signing that not many other people will predict doing well.
