Liverpool fans’ support leaves Daniel Agger speechless

Daniel Agger says it is “difficult to describe” the sheer support Liverpool got from fans before, during and after Wednesday night’s 2-1 victory over Sunderland.

The Reds kept their Premier League title hopes alive with an important three points over the Black Cats at Anfield.

Goals from Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge either side of half-time had given Brendan Rodgers’ men a comfortable cushion, but Ki Sung-Yueng’s header 14 minutes from time made for a nervous ending.

Liverpool fans greeted the team bus upon it’s arrival down Anfield Road prior to the game, and the Kop was awash with flags and banners as a real sense of belief reverberated around L4.

“It reminded me a bit of the Champions League days,” Agger told the club’s official website after the game. “It was amazing.

“It just shows how good a support we have and we have to give everything to try and win these games, because when you get support like that… it’s difficult to describe.”

The victory means Liverpool are back to second in the Premier League table, just a point behind leaders Chelsea, who travel to Anfield at the end of April.

Furthermore, the result moves the Reds five points clear of fourth placed Arsenal, as they look to cement an automatic route to the Champions League group stage next season.

Agger added, “At the end of the day it was three points and that was exactly what we came for.

“We wanted to close the game earlier – it was unnecessary to let them into the game. But sometimes it’s like that and you have to defend and we did that.”

Liverpool next face Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday afternoon and will be hoping Chelsea drop points at Crystal Palace and Manchester City slip up at Arsenal on Saturday.
