Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has praised Dan Agger as he battles for a return to the first team. "Daniel is a fantastic professional and so it's no surprise that he played so well," he told liverpoolfc.tv. "People may have watched the game and been surprised, but I wasn't.

We have four good centre backs and I am really pleased with all of them."
