Liverpool fans react on Twitter to Jose Enrique's under-21 performance at centre-back

Jose Enrique played at centre-back for Liverpool against Manchester United.

Liverpool fans got another look at Jose Enrique last night - in an unfamiliar centre-back position.

The Spaniard was selected in the middle in the under-21 match against Manchester United, and it could not have started more poorly for him.

Enrique's sloppy play was a contributing factor as Liverpool conceded three goals early on, letting United first team star Marouane Fellaini made an impact for the Red Devils, as did the recently returned Nick Powell.

Liverpool and Enrique improved as the game went on, battling back and almost equalising, with a frenetic finish to the match meaning the game ended 3-2 to United.

29-year-old Enrique has not played this season for the first team, and will not have done himself any favours with this performance.

More impressive were performances from the returning Jordan Rossiter in central midfield, while Jerome Sinclair and Madger Gomes netted for the Reds.

If new boss Jurgen Klopp was hoping that Enrique would give him something to work his magic on, and get him involved in the first team, last night's display showed he has his work cut out.
