Despite a disappointing loss to West Brom in the opening weekend, Liverpool put on a memorable performance against Premier League defending champions Manchester City, during which Brendan Rodgers' squad took the lead twice at Anfield and were unlucky to be undone by a late Carlos Tevez equalizer.
Although he wished the team recorded their first win of the campaign against Roberto Mancini's men, Enrique told the club's official website that the game displayed what the Reds were capable of.
"We made two mistakes and they punished us with two goals. But to get a point against Manchester City is not a bad result. This team was the best team in the league last year and we were better than them," he stated.
"We are still learning with a new manager and some new players and of course we need some time but if we keep playing like that then we will win many points."
Rodgers' intention for Liverpool to play in a fluid passing style typically associated with La Liga side Barcelona was scoffed at by critics, who considered his squad lacking in quality to do so. However, the former Newcastle player believes their performance against City indicated that the Reds have the ability to play to their manager's wishes.
"The manager wants us to try to keep the ball when we have it and then press hard like lions when we don't have it. We did that really high up the pitch against City. They had to pass back to their 'keeper many times or kick the ball long because we were pressing them," Enrique shared.
"It's like tiki-taka. The best team in the world is the best example and that's Barcelona. We see how amazing they are with the ball and how when they lose it they win it back within a few seconds. We can't compare ourselves to them but we are trying to play like this."
