Agger: Eyes on the prize
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger accepts that the Premier League title is still Manchester United's to lose.
The Reds have closed to within one point of the Red Devils at the top of the table, but Sir Alex Ferguson's men still have a game in hand on their North West rivals.
A recent wobble by United has helped to rekindle interest in the battle for top-flight supremacy, with the race now expected to go down to the wire.
Many are now tipping Liverpool's momentum to carry them to glory, but Agger knows that their fate is the hands of others as they hope to take full advantage of any more slip-ups from the leaders.
"It will be hard, because we are still behind United," the Danish centre-half told Sporten.
"But as long as there are points to play for, we will be going for the trophy.
"It was good that we beat United recently (4-1 at Old Trafford), but it was almost just as important that they lost to Fulham (2-0) in their next game.
"That's what we needed, but we need more help from other teams if we are to win the title."
