Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is expected to be out of action for at least four weeks after he suffered a rib injury during Sunday’s 4-0 defeat at Tottenham.

The 26-year-old Denmark international was substituted before half-time after falling heavily during the Premier League clash at White Hart Lane.

The injury will cause Agger to miss Tuesday’s Carling Cup game at Brighton, as well as the Premier League clashes against Wolves, Everton and Manchester United.

Agger’s agent Per Steffensen told sporten.tv2.dk: “It’s the worst possible news. He has broken two ribs, and he must keep still for four weeks.”

He added on tipsbladet.dk: “Daniel is way down now and I certainly sympathise with him.

“He will miss the two [international] matches against Cyprus and Portugal and there is a match against Manchester United he also misses. It’s insanely annoying.”
