Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has praised the performances of defenders Daniel Agger and Jose Enrique by saying that they are responsible for the success Liverpool have had this season, despite the fact that it might be limited.

Liverpool won the Carling cup this season, which was their first trophy after a gap of six years. However, they have been struggling a lot in the league this season. They currently are in the eighth position, which would translate into the worst league finish since 1954 for Liverpool. Due to the fact that legend Kenny Dalglish is at the helm, there has been no uprising at Anfield.

However, Martin Skrtel has said that Daniel Agger and Jose Enrique are responsible for the success that they had enjoyed this season. Jose Enrique joined the club in the summer from Newcastle United for around £ 6 million. He has been a regular starter for the club this season, as manager Kenny Dalglish has largely preferred him to the Brazilian full-back Aurelio. This is the seventh season at Anfield for defender Daniel Agger. He has made 28 appearances for the club this season, while Jose Enrique has featured in 40 matches for Liverpool. Jose Enrique and Daniel Agger have undoubtedly been the few bright spots for Liverpool this season.

“I don't think it's been our best season, especially in the league. He was unlucky to get injured, but when he has played I think he's been very good. I've played with him a lot and know how good he is,” Martin Skrtel said regarding defender Daniel Agger. Daniel Agger helped Liverpool lift the Carling Cup after performing excellently in the final against Cardiff City in February. Since then, he has been used sparingly by manager Kenny Dalglish after having suffered a rib injury from the match.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger has said that Liverpool are determined to beat QPR during the weekend in order to banish the poor home record that they have been having this season. Even though Liverpool have been excellent away from home, they have really struggled against the bottom clubs at Anfield. Norwich and a few other clubs from the bottom end of the table have come to Anfield and secured valuable points. Daniel Agger says that the club needs to win against QPR without exception in order to make the visiting teams once again fear about Anfield.

Anfield in the past has been known for the exceptional atmosphere and the fear that it produces within the minds of the away teams. However, the way Liverpool play under Kenny Dalglish has allowed visiting teams to just sit back and enjoy the opportunity to counter-attack Liverpool. This is exactly the tactics of Liverpool employs when are from home, and Kenny Dalglish's men have been getting their taste of their own medicine in recent weeks. The match against QPR comes at an important stage in the season because of the fact that Tottenham seem to be pulling away from the rest of the pack chasing for the Champions League spot.

Further, Arsenal have been in spectacular form in recent weeks and this would mean that Liverpool would be left behind in the race if they continue with the poor form. "Everybody who plays football at this level doesn't like to lose, so everybody was really upset (about the defeat) and also about the way we lost - we had a lot of chances and I think we deserved better, but that's football. Luckily in football, there is always a game next week and a chance to bounce back - and that's something we have to do. We need the points," Daniel Agger said.
