Daniel Agger: Liverpool defender has been omitted by Brendan Rodgers in recent w

The Danish defender had been left out by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers for the five previous Premier League matches before the 4-0 win over Fulham at Anfield.

The 28-year-old is contracted to the club until 2016, and his absence from the side had led to stories he was unhappy with his situation.

"I have been waiting for this chance and, as I have said before, you have to take it when you get it," Agger told TV3+.

"I feel I have got the right to play, and of course I would have liked it to have come earlier. But in the end it is the coach who decides."

Liverpool ruthlessly dispatched Fulham, going into half-time three goals up, and Agger said keeping concentration in such a dominant team performance was his biggest test.

He added: "We didn't feel threatened, therefore it was just a matter of keeping our concentration and staying focused on what happens and not watch too much football.

"But we are happy that we had a clean sheet and scored some goals."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
