Agger returns to action

Agger, who has been out with a back problem, played for the Liverpool reserves in their victory over their Manchester City counterparts on Tuesday night.

Reserve-team coach John McMahon was happy with the defender’s performance in the game.

“It was a good win for us and Daniel did really well and it was great to see him back,” McMahon told the club’s official website.

“He was committed, he made some good challenges and he helped the young lads around him. He enjoyed himself and was pleased to be back.”
