JOSE ENRIQUE insists Liverpool’s performance against Arsenal proves they are capable of beating champions Manchester City at the Etihad on Sunday.
The Spanish left-back, who returned to action in midweek after a month out with a hamstring injury, is determined to help step up the Reds’ push for a Champions League spot.
“I think when you get a draw away at Arsenal it is a good result for the team, but we were 2-0 up and I thought we deserved more,” Enrique said.
“We played very well in the first half and had some chances to increase our score and were a little bit unlucky.
“In the second half they pressed us and made it difficult for us and both sides had chances, but it was a great game and in the end it’s not a bad result.
“We have another very important game at Manchester City and I think if we can play like we did on Wednesday night then we can win it.
“There is a long way to go in the race for the top four and if we can take four points from these two games that would be fantastic.
“We won there last season in the Carling Cup and there’s no reason why we can’t do it again.”
