Enrique airs his concerns

Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has stated that the club threaten to lose their battle for a top four finish due to their faltering home form.

The Reds have dropped points unexpectedly at Anfield this season, with the latest disappointment a 0-0 draw with Stoke on Saturday.

The Spanish full back is hoping for improvement in performances on Merseyside, otherwise they will not feature in the Champions League once more next term.

“We lost two points again. We have to improve our home form because we have lost too many points at Anfield this season,” the left back told Mirror Football.

“It has been a similar story all season at home. It is frustrating because we are creating chances, but not taking them.

“I don’t think Stoke deserved a point. We had all of the ball, especially in the second half, and created two or three really good chances, but we just couldn’t score.

“We just have to stay positive. I think, maybe the Swansea game aside, we have deserved to win the other games we have drawn at home.

“If we start to take our chances, we can be in the top four. But if we don’t, then we will make it more difficult for ourselves,” he admitted.

Kenny Dalglish’s men travel to take on Bolton at the Reebok Stadium on Saturday, and the Spaniard is looking to get back to winning ways.

“I think it’s good we have a break now so we can prepare for Bolton.

“Away from home at the moment we are getting better results than at home so hopefully we can get the three points next Saturday,” he concluded.
