Liverpool defender Jose Enrique believes that Philippe Coutinho has the potential to have the same impact at Anfield as Luis Suarez.

Liverpool left-back Jose Enrique has revealed that he has been impressed with Philippe Coutinho since he arrived at the club in January.

Coutinho, who moved to Anfield from Inter Milan, has already made a positive impact on Merseyside, with Enrique insisting that he can become as good as striker Luis Suarez.

The 27-year-old told the Liverpool Daily Post: "Luis had a really good year after just six months here before. Now you can see the real Luis, with how many goals he scores.

"With Coutinho, it's going to happen the same I think. You can see how well he is doing but I think he's going to improve a lot more – if he improves after what he has been doing already he is going to be a top player for us.

"He's a really calm player; he doesn't talk much but he's always joking. I really like him."

The Brazilian has scored twice in eight Premier League appearances for Liverpool.
