Liverpool’s Danish defender Daniel Agger branded his Liverpool team-mates a bunch of ‘headless chickens’ after their 0-0 draw with Swansea. The draw leaves Liverpool in 6th place three points behind Chelsea who are currently occupying the final spot for the Champions League.
The Danish defender took a swipe at his team-mates after they failed once again to convert their draws into wins. Liverpool have only won 2 games from 6 Premier League games at home, a record that could prove costly. The 26-year-old believes if they continue like this, they will miss out on the Champions League for the third season in a row.
Disgruntled Agger said: “If we play like this, we won’t do it.
“Sometimes we looked like headless chickens running around after the ball.
“I think everyone was angry and disappointed, some more than others, but that’s the way it is.”
Agger will recall when they just missed out from winning there first Premier League title in the 2008/2009 season, losing out to rivals United by 4 points. Liverpool only lost two matches that season which theoretically should be good enough to win any title. However they fell into the trap of drawing far too many games against the so called ‘lesser opposition’ which in the end cost them dearly.
Liverpool have desperately been unlucky at times this season, they have hit the framework the most times this season and are creating enough chances in games to be finishing off their opponents. Andy Carroll and Suarez have also been firing blanks this season; Suarez has four goals to date while Carroll has 2. In reality Suarez should have a much higher goal ratio if he had converted his chances better.
Agger knows his side cannot afford to draw too many games, otherwise they will get left behind.
He added: “That record of two wins from six games speaks for itself. It is far from good enough.
“We have got to move up a level or two.
“I don’t know how we can drop that far from last week.
“We were really, really bad. When we got the ball we lost it straight away. We were not sharp enough.
“We have to win these type of games, no matter which kind of team we put out.
“We are Liverpool Football Club. We have to win our home games.
“You have to give them credit because they played well. That doesn’t make our performance better.”
