Hyypia: Liverpool form hurts me

Hyypia said: “Competition for places is good and when I get my chance I try my best to make it difficult for the manager to decide who he plays.

“I appreciate every game I play for Liverpool, and no player is ever going to like being on the bench, but Daniel Agger has played very well and Jamie Carragher is one of our most important players, so it’s a healthy competition.

“Our recent form is very frustrating, and it hurts me personally too because I’ve played in the games against Everton away and Bolton in which we’ve lost.”
