Liverpool's Daniel Agger determined to beat QPR after Fulham defeat

Danish defender focused on helping Kenny Dalglish's side recover from their loss at Craven Cottage and also believes youngster Sebastian Coates has a bright future

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is determined to bounce back from Monday night’s defeat to Fulham with a win on Saturday against QPR.

The Dane feels Kenny Dalglish’s side was unlucky to take nothing away from Craven Cottage but he revealed the defeat has only spurred them on to be more clinical in their upcoming games.

"After the Fulham game it was the same as every time we lose - it was quiet and people were upset," Agger told the club’s official website. "Everybody who plays football at this level doesn't like to lose, so everybody was really upset [about the defeat] and also about the way we lost - we had a lot of chances and I think we deserved better, but that's football.

"Luckily in football, there is always a game next week and a chance to bounce back - and that's something we have to do. We need the points. It's always difficult to talk about positions and which position you can end up," he added. "I really hope we can be in the top four because Champions League football is the main thing.

"Everybody who has experienced it knows it is the biggest tournament and wants to be in it. That's definitely the target."

Agger reserved praise for youngster Sebastian Coates who he believes has performed admirably when he’s played for Liverpool this season and thinks the defender has a bright future.

"Sebastian has done really well in the games he's played. He's learning quickly and he definitely has all of the tools to have a great career," said Agger. "It's up to him and the best way to show it is to play some good games."
