The former Inter Milan midfielder has caught the eye since his January arrival.
"All top teams have to have a good goalkeeper, good defenders and a good midfield," Enrique told Liverpoolfc.com. "These things are important, but the players who make the difference are the ones who play up front.
"That is why they are the most sought-after in the world; the strikers, the wingers.
"Coutinho is one of these players who, from nothing, can make an assist or create a goal. He's like Luis Suarez - from nothing, and sometimes up against two players, he can create something."
