Liverpool star Daniel Agger gave Arsenal fans a massive scare with a heavy challenge on Jack wilshere last night.

Denmark's Daniel Agger launched into a challenge on Jack Wilshere last night which left the Arsenal man close to tears at the pair generated through the challenge.

Fortunately for Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger as they leapt out of their seats, Wilshere was able to recover and return to the game before he was replace after an hour as England went looking for the winner.

It was a real hard challenge from the Liverpool man with his gaze switching from Wilshere to the ball at the final second, which suggested there was no malice or intent from the Liverpool centre back.

However, plenty of Arsenal fans on Twitter immediately called for a straight red card and they have been dished out for less this season. We’ve included the challenge in a video above, what do you think and make of the challenge?
