Liverpool defender Daniel Agger admits he is happy with his form and fitness so far this season.

Agger has seen his last couple of seasons at Anfield blighted by a series of niggling injuries.

The Danish international believes he is benefiting from a full pre-season and he believes there is still a lot more to come from him this season.

"The fact I got the full pre-season has helped me a lot. I feel a lot stronger, a lot better, but I still have more to come, hopefully," Agger told the club's official website.

"I feel I can give some more, have more to offer, so hopefully I can carry on playing games and that will help me.

"Fitness-wise I am happy right now, but as the season carries on you get more games under your belt and you get stronger, quicker and better."

Competition

Agger, who has started all four of Liverpool's Premier League games to date, is not worried about the extra competition for places at Anfield this season despite the recent arrival of Uruguayan defender Sebastian Coates.

"I have been here almost six years now and every year there are new players coming in and players going," noted Agger.

"It is normal for a big club like Liverpool to bring in players to add to the competition. Everything changes every year, so it's good to have healthy competition as we have now. It's good for the club and the players."
