Liverpool's Enrique: Players should be blamed not Dalglish

Liverpool defender Jose Enrique believes the players are the ones that need to be criticised and not manager Kenny Dalglish for the side's poor recent form.

The Reds have lost five of their past six Premier League outings which has heaped pressure on the Scottish tactician but Spanish left-back Enrique says it is those who wear the shirts on matchday that need to take ownership of the negative results.

"The manager takes pressure for us and of course that is good," said Enrique in the wake of Saturday's 2-1 home loss to Wigan Athletic.

"But the truth is, when we make mistakes or have a bad game, we know where the mistakes come from.

"Who plays the games? The players. Who has to win them? The players too.

"The players are frustrated just the same (as the fans).

"We have played good football in many games but against Wigan we didn't deserve to win."
