Liverpool defender Jose Enrique believes it is key the team head into Saturday's FA Cup final with momentum - and that means beating Fulham at Anfield on Tuesday.

The eighth-placed Reds have nothing to play for in the Barclays Premier League except for catching near-neighbours Everton immediately above them.

Winning a second cup of the season is far more important but Enrique said they could not afford to waste the confidence boost given to them by last weekend's 3-0 win at Norwich. "It was a good start to a big week for us," said the Spaniard. "We have to beat Fulham first before we think about the cup final."
