Liverpool were too wasteful - Enrique

Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has warned the side cannot afford to throw away points at home if they are intent on regaining their Champions League status.

Despite dominating and creating a plethora of chances the Reds were held by a Norwich side who grew in confidence.

Liverpool hit the woodwork three times and wasted numerous opportunities to put the result beyond doubt as early as the first half.

The Reds have now dropped six points at home to Norwich, Sunderland and Manchester United in matches they could – and probably should – have won.

A second successive home draw meant Liverpool lost ground on fourth-placed Newcastle.

'We all respect Norwich and they did really well,' said Enrique.

'But at home against teams like that we have to win if we want to be in the Champions League. I think we lose a lot of points like that.
