With Lucas out injured for the rest of the season and now Jay Spearing having picked up a red card on Monday night against Fulham, Kenny Dalglish is short of options in midfield to have a defensive minded player there.
John Aldridge is suggesting that Kenny should try play Daniel Agger in that position. Aldridge said, “But Kenny also has other options which people may not have considered.
Jamie Carragher started his career in central midfield and is still more than capable of playing there.
Martin Kelly, too, is another who has experience of that role earlier in his career – but another player I’m convinced could do a job there in the short-term is Daniel Agger.
He’s comfortable with the ball at his feet, can use it well, obviously knows how to tackle and when he gets forward has a decent dig on him with his left foot.
If Kenny was tempted to push Daniel into midfield for a match or two, it would also have the double benefit of getting Carra back into the heart of defence.
Jonjo Shelvey’s been recalled from his loan spell at Blackpool and young Connor Coady looked bright in pre-season, so there are plenty of options for Kenny to think about.”
