Reds pay price of profligacy

Jose Enrique is adamant that Liverpool should have claimed all three points in the 1-1 draw against Norwich on Saturday, and admits the Reds paid the price for their lack of cutting edge in front of goal.

Kenny Dalglish's side carved out countless opportunities against the Canaries in their Barclays Premier League clash at Anfield, but failed to build on Craig Bellamy's opener, though the Spaniard insists they would have notched a handful on another day.

"In the first half we played really well and had a lot of chances but I don't think we played the second like the first," said Enrique. "We deserved three points. We had a lot of chances to score goals and I don't know what happened.


"I think we had some bad luck, it became frustrating for the players who were trying and trying. In the second half we dropped a bit and they scored an amazing goal."

Liverpool are yet to keep a clean sheet at Anfield so far this season, but the 25-year-old defender feels that stat is irrelevant when you consider how many opportunities they created - more than enough to win the game.

"A clean sheet is important but if we don't have a clean sheet and score two or three goals the result would have been the same," he added.

"The team played really well and scored one goal but we could have scored five."
