Daniel Agger has already set his sights on 200 Barclays Premier League appearances for Liverpool after making it a century of matches in the top flight against West Brom on Saturday.

The versatile Danish international, who has played in either the centre back or left back position during his time at Anfield, has been hampered by injuries during his time on Merseyside.

However, the 26-year-old former Brøndby starlet is hoping those problems are well-and-truly in the past, and is hoping to reach the next milestone in much quicker fashion.

"It's special to play 100 league games for Liverpool and it has been a long time coming because of the unlucky injuries I have had," he told the official Reds website.

"Hopefully now I can have an injury free run and I hope to keep on going and play another 100 games for this club. I am enjoying my football now.

"I feel I have been unlucky with injuries and hopefully I can get some good luck now because it means a lot to me to play for this club."

The 100th appearance was well-marked at The Hawthorns, with a rare clean sheet helping secure a 2-0 victory in the Midlands against former manager Roy Hodgson.

It's a result which has raised confidence levels at the club, according to Agger, and the Dane believes there are plenty of positives to take into this weekend's clash against Swansea City.

"It was so important for us to keep a clean sheet and that is always good for us defenders and great for the whole team as well," he continued.

"I thought we played well and deserved the three points. We are happy and we have to continue this form and keep winning games.

"I think we can take a lot from this result and we now look ahead to the next game against Swansea at home and try and get another three points."
