Jose Enrique says he is looking forward to Liverpool’s next Premier League game against Aston Villa at Anfield on Saturday.

The Spain international is facing a tough battle for a starting spot after Brendan Rodgers signed Alberto Moreno in a £12m deal from Sevilla.

The 22-year-old summer signing made an eye-catching start to his Liverpool career, scoring a superb solo goal to help seal a 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur last month.

Enrique hasn’t featured for Liverpool this year after long-term knee problem kept the former Newcastle United defender sidelined for almost 10 months.

But the 28-year-old defender is relishing a return to action as Liverpool look to secure their third win of the season.

“Sad to be leaving :(( . Now looking forward for the next game :)))” Enrique posted on Instagram.

Enrique has scored two goals in 77 Premier League appearances for Liverpool following his move to Anfield from Newcastle in 2011.
