Former Liverpool striker John Aldridge believes Danish international Daniel Agger should be brought back into Brendan Rodgers' first team, reports the Daily Mirror.

Agger has lost his place in Liverpool's starting line-up as Rodgers has instead opted to play summer signings Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho alongside Martin Skrtel.

The 28-year-old, who was an unused substitute against Premier League leaders Arsenal on Saturday, has been linked with a move away from Anfield due to the lack of game time he has been afforded so far this season.

However the former Brondby centre-back recently announced that he is keen on staying at Anfield and was willing to fight for his place at Liverpool.

Liverpool's back three of Toure, Sakho and Skrtel looked particularly shaky against both Newcastle and Arsenal.

Aldridge has since questioned Rodgers' decision to omit Agger from Liverpool's starting line-up.

Aldridge said on Agger: "We haven't been defending particularly badly, but we haven't been keeping clean sheets.

"Agger is too good a player to be out of the team for too long and after a defeat like Saturday, I expect to see him back in the starting line-up.

"Toure, Skrtel and Sakho haven't done much wrong and I'm not sure which one will make way, but I just think the back line will be stronger with Daniel in it."

Agger will be hoping Aldridge gets his wish when Liverpool take on Fulham at Anfield on Saturday.
