Agger may miss most of the season after he injured the medial ligament in his knee.

"Agger's injury doesn't look good," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "The medics were saying it might be a medial ligament. We'll see."

And Chelsea manager Robert Di Matteo is "optimistic" defender Ashley Cole will sign a new contract with the club when his current contract expires at the end of the season.

Di Matteo said he hopes Cole's situation will be resolved before the January transfer window.

"I'm very optimistic that it will be dealt with before that. He has become a legend—he is now Chelsea through and through. But I wouldn't say it's just happened recently. He's been here many years and has contributed a lot to this club," said Di Matteo.
