Liverpool defender Daniel Agger insists the team are playing better than 12 months ago even if the statistics do not back up his assertion.

After 15 matches of the season Brendan Rodgers' side are 11th on 19 points, 17 behind leaders Manchester United and seven adrift of Champions League qualification having won only four games and drawn seven. A year ago, under Kenny Dalglish, the team were sixth, 12 points off the top and just three behind fourth place with seven victories and five draws.

"The last couple of games we've played really well," said Denmark captain Agger.
