Agger set to make his season debut

Liverpool are set to be boosted by the return of Daniel Agger for his first start of the season in Tuesday's Carling Cup tie at Leeds.

he highly-rated Danish international defender suffered a back problem which required surgery during pre-season and was expected to be missing for six weeks.

However, he has been back in training and was almost considered for a return within a month in Saturday's 3-2 win at West Ham.

Reds boss Rafa Benitez said on Friday that they were trying to protect him and did not want to rush him back into action too soon.

But, in order to gain him some match fitness, Agger is set to feature in the cup clash at Elland Road against the League One leaders.

Benitez is set to make several changes to his side with full-back Fabio Aurelio also standing by for his first start of the season after a knee problem.
