Jose Enrique: Calling on Liverpool team-mates to "fight for every point&quo

Brendan Rodgers' side were outbattled at Stoke on Boxing Day, slipping to a 3-1 defeat despite taking a second-minute lead through Steven Gerrard's penalty.

The result left Liverpool eight points behind three teams contesting fourth place and was a dispiriting follow-up to Saturday's impressive victory over Fulham.

And Enrique has warned his team-mates success will continue to prove elusive as long as their application fails to match their ability.

He told the club website: "We need more experience and need to show more character in these type of games.

"You can see we have quality players and we have a good squad, but we need to fight for every point we play for if we want to be in the top four.

"We have to get a winning mentality going and we have to show what we are all about. Every game in this league is difficult but you have to give 100 per cent every time you play for this club and show character."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
