Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has hailed the impact of defensive pair Martin Skrtel and Dan Agger this season.

Enrique, a summer signing from Newcastle, thinks the Skrtel-Agger partnership is the best of its kind in England.

"I wouldn't change our centre-backs for any centre-backs in the league. They are both playing amazingly," he told liverpoolfc.tv.

"We have one of the best right-backs in the world, because Johnno (Glen Johnson) is really good, and one of the best 'keepers, and we have amazing players in front who help us to defend.

"Clean sheets are really important because if you keep one, you have one point for sure.

"But if we won each game 6-5, I wouldn't care. The most important thing is winning the games but I'm really happy when we keep clean sheets."

"We are doing well. We defend and attack as one - we play together. I'm happy because as a team we're doing well - only Manchester City are ahead of us in clean sheets.

"We have to keep doing this and score more goals."
