Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has paid tribute to defender Jose Enrique after an impressive run of form at Anfield.
The Spanish full back moved to Merseyside from Newcastle in the summer transfer window, with the 25-year-old quickly becoming an integral part of a Reds side challenging for a place in the Barclays Premier League top four.
When questioned if the August addition was the best in the Barclays Premier League, Dalglish stopped short of saying yes, but admitted he's delighted to have the former Villarreal player amongst his ranks.
"We're just delighted to have him. He's not disappointed us in any way, shape or form," said 'King Kenny' ahead of the West Brom clash.
"If other people have an opinion that's fine, but we're the ones who had to make the choice on whether to sign him or not.
"We did and we're pleased we did sign him. He's done really well for us."
Dalglish also stressed the importance of the defence collectively improving to keep more clean sheets in the division.
The Reds' last blank came in the Merseyside derby against Everton, and whilst the manager admits it's not the most important statistic for the team, it would guarantee a point every time.
"The clean sheets are a reflection on everybody, not just the goalkeeper," he added.
"The most important thing is if you don't lose a goal, the least you're coming away with is a point.
"It's important for the pride of some people not to lose a goal, but the greatest importance of all for everybody is for us to walk off the pitch with a victory.
