Johnson Confident Of Bounce-Back

Despite losing 2-1 to Manchester City on Boxing Day, Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson is still confident his team can win the English Premier League title.

Liverpool’s loss to City was their fourth of the league season and saw them surrender their place at the top of the table, dropping down to fourth place, three points behind league leaders Arsenal.

Johnson does not feel his team deserved to lose to City and believes they can still win the league.

“We didn't deserve to lose that,” said Johnson.

“The performance definitely deserved at least a point.

“This is probably the most positive I've ever been after a defeat.

“There are not many teams that will come here and play like we did tonight.

“We proved we can compete with City. At times we dominated possession.

“Of course we came under pressure at times - that is going to happen when you are playing Manchester City at home - but we dealt with most things well.

“We played to our game plan almost perfectly. We just didn't get the points at the end of it. We had some really good chances and we are disappointed not to get anything from the game.

Johnson went on to bemoan the disallowed goal by Raheem Sterling which would have seen Liverpool with a share of the spoils.

“I've seen Raheem's disallowed goal. You can't even defend the assistant after that. It's just ridiculous,” added Johnson.

“Sometimes commentators defend officials saying it's difficult when two players are in the same cut of the grass. But they were three yards apart - it's not even close.

“I didn't think Raheem was off at the time and the replays proved that. Luis is adamant that it was a penalty when he had his shirt pulled towards the end.”
