Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has admitted they were not good enough for the first hour of their FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea at Wembley.

The Reds did not seem to come alive until Andy Carroll's introduction in the 55th minute but by then they were 2-0 down. The former Newcastle front man pulled one back the Merseysiders and was denied an equaliser late on by a great save from Petr Cech, with television replays inconclusive over whether the ball crossed the line before the Czech clawed it away.

"We can't use that (fightback) for much. It simply was not good enough for the first hour and we can only blame ourselves," said the Denmark defender.
