Liverpool are in with a shout to win the first league championship since 1990 by virtue of a great performance from forwards like Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez. The team could be just two points behind the leaders Chelsea if they win the match in hand against Sunderland, who will be the visitors to Anfield in the midweek round of action.
Liverpool recently managed a 6-3 rout of Cardiff, which put them on to 82 goals for the season. They are on course to beating Chelsea’s record of 103 goals during an entire Premier league season.
Moreover, the club are certain to finish in the top four, which was the objective at the start of the campaign. Since they have done extremely well in the last few months, defender Glen Johnson believes that most of the neutrals will be back in Liverpool for the title. Manchester City, Chelsea, and Arsenal are the other teams involved in one of the tightest Premier league title races in recent memory. Brendan Rodgers has employed a passing style of football, which is similar to the one used by Barcelona during the most successful era under Guardiola.
This has been loved by many and their goals have also been exciting to watch. Johnson says that Liverpool are not thinking of the title right now.
“Just to spice things up the neutrals would want to see us win it. Nobody wants the same teams to be winning it over and over again. I guess the neutrals will be packing a punch for us. We must be good to watch. People watch football to enjoy themselves, see goals and see exciting football, and I think we do provide that. I think people will be rooting for us because it will be something different,” Johnson said ahead of the Sunderland match.
