Jose Enrique has urged Liverpool to take maximum points from their trip to Basel in the Champions League.
The Spanish left-back is part of Brendan Rodgers’s squad that travelled to Switzerland for their second Group B clash.
Enrique was on the bench for the 1-1 draw with Everton in last weekend’s Merseyside derby after failing to dislodge rival Alberto Moreno.
And the former Newcastle United defender took to his Twitter account to post a photo from St. Jakob-Park on Wednesday.

On Tuesday evening, England midfielder Adam Lallana insisted that Liverpool had learned valuable lessons from their 2-1 win against Ludogorets earlier this month.
“That’s the good thing about having a game in midweek, especially off the back of a disappointing result,” Lallana told Liverpool’s website.
“[Jagielka’s goal] was kind of a sucker-punch in the last minute, but we get a chance to put it right tonight. That’s all you can ask for off the back of a result like that.
“It’ll be a fantastic start if we can get the win. It’s going to be a tough game – coming away from home as well – but I think we got valuable experience from the first game [against Ludogorets Razgrad] and showed great character.
“If we can possess that again tonight, we’ve got a great chance of getting a good result.”
