Luis Suarez goal was planned claims Enrique

Liverpool striker Luis SuarezLiverpool defender Jose Enrique has revealed he and Luis Suarez had planned the move that resulted in the Uruguayan’s outstanding goal against Newcastle.

Suarez calmly chested down Enrique’s 60-yard pass before rounding Newcastle keeper Tim Krul to equalise in the 1-1 draw at Anfield yesterday.

And the Spanish defender has admitted that he and Suarez had discussed the move before the game and that he was not surprised with the way his team mate finished.

He told Liverpool’s official website: “I spoke with Luis before the game I told him, if you have a chance and see a space behind the Newcastle centre back, just try.

“We tried that and it worked. I know his movement is really, really clever and that he is a great player. The goal was all about the control from Luis. And his finish was 10 out of 10. It was amazing.

“We all know Luis already though, so [the quality of the goal] was no surprise.”

But Enrique also revealed his disappointment at the 1-1 draw, claiming Liverpool deserved to take all three points to make it back-to-back home wins.

“We were disappointed with the result because Newcastle only had two chances to score and one of them was their goal,” he added.

“We deserved to win and we know we have to start to get points. Afterwards the manager told us to try to keep doing what we are doing. And I think we are doing well.

“We feel good and we will  go into the games with the same mentality and that is to try and win.”
