Agger (knee) has been determined fit for the upcoming clash with Manchester City, and is "back in the squad" according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Agger started seven matches in a row before missing last week's trip to West Ham with a knee injury. The Reds' defense churned out three clean sheets, and won all seven matches during that time, so it's likely the Dane will take over starting centerback duties this weekend. Despite the minutes on the pitch, there isn't much upside here for fantasy owners, as Agger and the rest of the Liverpool defense will have a tough time keeping out the high powered Manchester City attack.

Agger will undergo a scan of his calf, after an initial diagnosis of a calf turned out to me inaccurate, according to the Independent.

There's still time ahead of this weekend's clash at Stoke City on Sunday, but if Agger's injury is serious in any way, he will surely be kept out for the Premier League tie.

Agger headed in Philippe Coutinho's corner in the 36th minute during Wednesday's 2-0 win over Hull City.
