Liverpool fullback Enrique full of praise for Arsenal's "brilliant" Walcott

Liverpool fullback Jose Enrique admits he's a big fan of Arsenal star Theo Walcott.

Enrique knows from his Newcastle United days all about the damage the Arsenal winger can inflict.

He insisted: "We are only interested in victory. Three points are a necessity if we are to continue our dream of European football.

"We know Arsenal are also in the race with improved morale after winning their derby over Spurs. I also know this will be a good test for me.

"But I realise Theo is in great form. Sincerely, I have always thought of Theo as one of the more brilliant English players I have seen since I've been here.

"His speed with the ball under control is incredible. He is one of the best in Europe in this aspect.

"Both Theo and Arsenal will be looking to avenge our victory over them in London early in the season and this only adds more intensity to the match."
