Agger: Out since September

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has a suffered a setback in his recovery from a metatarsal injury.

The Danish international has been out since September, with the problem restricting him to just five appearances in the Premier League this season.

Agger was due to play for Liverpool's reserves last week but saw the game cancelled due to bad weather, and has now suffered a recurrence of the original injury during training.

It is unclear at present how long the defender will be sidelined for but Rafa Benitez is not expecting to be able to call on his services for the rest of the month.

Bad news

"We've had some bad news in that Agger has the same problem again," the Spaniard told Liverpoolfc.tv.

"He was training and ready to play but yesterday (Sunday) in training he felt something, so we need to go back and start from the beginning.

"It's not easy to say when he will be back. He is going to see different surgeons and then we will be able to analyse the situation."

Aurelio back

Agger remains the only doubt for Benitez going into Tuesday's FA Cup replay with Luton and the Spaniard will have other players back in contention.

"Fabio Aurelio is fit again and the other players are available," he said.
