Agger denies Kop blame game
DANIEL AGGER insists that confidence is still sky high at low-scoring Liverpool – despite another home body-blow.
Kenny Dalglish’s careless Reds have dropped 12 points in front of the Kop, with rockbottom Blackburn the sixth team to leave Anfield with a point on Boxing Day.
Relegation-threatened Rovers and Bolton have both scored more goals than Liverpool, but Agger insisted: “There’s no complacency. If you look at all the games, we’ve had plenty of chances and possession.
“We have actually played well in most of the games.
“It’s just that final touch. It’s not only one or two players – it’s all of us. We have all had chances but we’re not scoring.”
The Reds’ £35million striker Andy Carroll, with just two league goals to his credit this season, again failed to find the back of the net against Rovers.
But Agger says the blame should not be directed at any one player.
“You can’t just point at the strikers,” he said.
“It’s like when you are conceding goals. It’s not just the defenders – it’s the whole team. It is always a worry but what can you do? You can only keep creating chances and at some point it has to come.
“It would be a problem if we were not creating chances but we are doing that so we can’t complain.
“The only way to solve it is to create more chances.
“But when you play for Liverpool at Anfield, you have got to go out and win the game – especially these ones.”
