Enrique compares Liverpool colleague Suarez to Messi

Liverpool defender Jose Enrique claims Luis Suarez has the same ability as Lionel Messi when it comes to going past people.

"I tell [Luis] all the time that he always does the same thing - he tries to do nutmegs. It's always 'megs, 'megs, 'megs and you just know he is going to do it but you can't stop him," said the Spaniard.

"When you know someone you can know what they are going to do, but he's still a very difficult player to train against and he scores so many goals in training.

"It's like with Messi: everyone says he is going to cut inside all the time and you know he is going to do this but you can't stop him from cutting inside and scoring goals.

"With Luis, it's the same (but) of course there are some differences between the two players."

Suarez, is however, much more than just a goalscorer for the Reds.

"Luis is a great all-round striker but it's not just about the goals, it's about what he gives to the team - it's about his personality and his attitude," he told Liverpool's official website.

"He's the same in training as what you see in games. He gives 100 per cent all the time. He never misses training and, touch wood, he has not been injured so far.

"Everyone wants to win - my character is that I don't like to lose at anything - but with Luis when he loses the ball he knows exactly how to press again.

"It's amazing, of course, how he scores goals and some of the goals he has scored have been incredible."
