Dalglish confirms Jose Enrique return

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish believes he will have left-back Jose Enrique available for the trip to Manchester United tomorrow lunchtime.


The Spaniard missed the scoreless draw with Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Monday night, where Glen Johnson was forced to fill in for him.


According to Dalglish, the former Newcastle United man is making good progress in his recovery from the back niggle that kept him out and should be in the Reds starting line up.


“We're looking alright, I don't think we're too bad and we should have everybody to choose from,” the Scot told reporters in a press conference ahead of Saturday.


“If we say everybody, I think that includes Jose Enrique.”


Enrique has been a revelation in the left full-back role since his £5 million move for St James’ Park to Anfield last summer.


It has been a problem position for the Reds over the past two seasons, with Rafa Benitez regular Fabio Aurelio dogged by injury, meaning a number of unsuitable candidates have come and gone.


The game at Old Trafford should be a tense affair as it will be the first time Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra play against each other since the incident at Anfield between the two, which saw Suarez banned for eight games after being found guilty of racially abusing the Frenchman.


However Dalglish will be feeling positive going into the game as it was his side who were victorious the last time two side met – a 2-1 win at Anfield in the FA Cup fifth round.
