Liverpool have been boosted by the news that Daniel Agger is set to return from injury to face Southampton tomorrow, according to the Daily Mirror. 

Agger suffered a freak injury in training this week which forced him to miss The Reds 2-2 with Swansea on Monday night.

The defender supposedly hurt himself whilst trying to evade a dumbbell that he dropped during gym-work.

However, the Danish centre-back may be in line for a return to action at Anfield as Brendan Rodgers' side host the Saints.

However, the hosts will certainly be without play-maker Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian injured his shoulder in Wales and can now be expected to be out of action until late October.

Meanwhile, star striker, Luis Suarez serves the last game of his 10-match ban for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic and can expect to return to League cup action against Manchester United next week.

Agger has established himself as key player for Liverpool since his move from Danish club Bronby back in 2006.

The tall defender has featured 158 times in the Premier League scoring seven goals and has 58 caps for Denmark.

The retirement of Reds legend Jamie Carragher at the end of last season prompted Rodgers to install Agger as the clubs new vice-captain.

Liverpool will be hoping to continue their good start to the season, which has put them top of the table after four games, against a mid-table Southampton side who have struggled for goals in recent weeks.
