The Liverpool defender, Glen Johnson, told Liverpool news that the way Liverpool players played in the match against Sunderland, they certainly deserved the one point that they got eventually.
The match between Liverpool and Sunderland, which was played at the Stadium of Light, ended in a draw with both teams scoring one goal each. As per Johnson, the boys never gave up. They kept fighting hard and got the reward for it. The body language of the team was extremely positive.
Sunderland took the lead in the 29th minute of the match against the run of play. Steven Fletcher was the one who opened the scoring for Sunderland. It was Craig Gardner who gave Fletcher a perfect pass and the Scottish player latched on the chance wonderfully. But, Luis Suarez gave the Liverpool fans a huge relief by scoring the leveller in the 71st minute.
Liverpool is yet to win a Premier League match this season. The team has played 4 matches in the ongoing Premier League season and haven’t managed to get three points in any of those matches. The team lost two matches, while, the remaining two ended in a draw. The team has managed to score only 3 goals in the current Premier League season so far.
The new manager of the team, Brendan Rodgers, is being criticized for the team’s poor performance in the ongoing season. But, Johnson thinks that Rodgers should be given a bit of time. As per Johnson, Rodgers is a fantastic manager and he is doing a fine job. But, everything is not in his hand. He can’t go out there and play. The players need to execute the plans in the middle. The team is getting better and better with every match and hopefully, the results would start going team’s way in the further matches.
