They may be in direct competition for a role in the team, but Jose Enrique insists he'll do all he can to ensure Alberto Moreno builds on an impressive start to his Liverpool career by helping him settle further into life in England.

The 22-year-old has made two appearances for the Reds since completing his switch from Sevilla last month, and struck a sensational solo goal in Sunday's 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

And despite the fact they'll both be vying for the same left-back berth over the coming weeks and months, Enrique insists he's happy to assist Moreno in ensuring he beds into his new surroundings as seamlessly as possible.

He told Liverpoolfc.com: "He's settled in really well. I said to him, from the start it can be difficult for a young player - I remember my first year at Newcastle was really, really difficult for me - but he has something I didn't and that's people here who can speak Spanish.

"It's good for him to arrive and get support straight away from people who speak the same language.

"He is getting his chance and against Tottenham he had a fantastic game - and the goal was brilliant."

The game at White Hart Lane was also significant for Enrique who made his first Barclays Premier League appearance in 10 months by coming off the bench as a late substitute.

"For me, it was a really, really happy moment, even if I just played five minutes," said Enrique. "It was really important for me to come back into a competitive game against Tottenham.

"The win was really good. From a possible nine points we have picked up six and have played against two teams who are going to fight for the same things, more or less, in Manchester City and Tottenham.

"I think we can be really happy with it."

Now back in contention, Enrique is looking forward to some healthy competition with Moreno - but was eager to stress they both share a common goal.

He said: "We are a team. Of course I want to play - I am going to fight for my place and I want it back, like everyone else does in the team. But we are humans and I know how difficult it is when you go away from home.

"Moreno is a great lad as well and I've got along with him from the start. I wish him the best.

"It's our job and I want to play, that's the reality, but I am going to help him, like I have already, with anything he needs.

"We want the same thing - Liverpool to try and win the league, be in the Champions League again next year and try to win something this season. We are fighting for the same thing - we're not here to fight between each other!"
