Left-back Jose Enrique believes Liverpool are still in the race for fourth spot, but conceded the team must pick up their home form to mount a challenge for that important Champions League spot.
Disappointed after the 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford, Enrique told the club’s official web site, “We lost but the truth is that we have to win more games at home. It is hard to beat Manchester United at home but against teams like Blackburn and Swansea at home we need to win the points.
“You never know in football – that’s why everyone likes it. But we’re still in the race.”
“It’s really important that we have to play these teams at home,” he added. “We’ll have another man – you play with 12 with our fans.
“But it’s not just them. There are many games left and we have to beat many teams to try and be there.”
