Agger: Scoring is a team game

Daniel Agger has declared that Liverpool's players must take collective responsibility for improving their goal tally.

Manager Brendan Rodgers is short of strikers after he was unable to bring in a replacement for Andy Carroll, who has joined West Ham on loan for the season.

Rodgers has since gone public in stating that he only let Carroll go because he thought there was a replacement lined up.

Liverpool's failure to sign Clint Dempsey or Daniel Sturridge has left them with only two senior forwards, Luis Suarez and Fabio Borini.

Rodgers' side have scored two goals – and collected one point – from their opening three Premier League games, losing 2-0 at home to Arsenal on Sunday.

And centre-back Agger is adamant that goals must start coming from each department of the team if Liverpool's fortunes are to improve.

He told the club website: "You could see against Arsenal that it wasn't only one player. It wasn't two players, it was three, four, five, six players who had chances, including myself.

"The chances are there and that's the most important thing. But we all need to start taking them. I'm still upbeat about the quality in the group. Everybody has to believe in it, otherwise they shouldn't be at a club like this."

Agger has admitted that Liverpool's performance against Arsenal was not up to standard.

"Overall we didn't play well enough. We gifted them two easy goals and didn't score any ourselves. You can't win a game if you do that," Agger explained. "Nothing is easy to fix. Not in football and not in life. But we are working on the manager's ideas every single day, so hopefully we can get better and better during the course of the season."
