The Nigeria forward marked a lively display with a well-taken first-half goal, and Enrique is confident he can establish himself as a key member of the first-team set up.
"I knew about him from when he was at Wigan and he always seemed like a very good player," he told liverpoolfc.com.
"He has also not played for a long time, so in the second half he was a little bit tired - but in the first half he was one of our best players. The goal he scored was fantastic.
"I think he is a player like Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge that can change a game at any point - and it's very important to have players like this."
