Liverpool are the fans favourite

England and Liverpool right back Glen Johnson believes the Anfield club are the neutrals favourite to win this seasons Barclays Premier League.

Liverpool are the league’s entertainers and have racked up an impressive 82 goals so far in the league following another impressive performance in the 6-3 away win at Cardiff City.

This approach is what Johnson believes makes his team the neutrals favourites.

“Just to spice things up the neutrals would want to see us win it,” Johnson said. “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.

“I’m not that surprised by how we’re playing. Even last season we were battering teams but not getting the goals. At the moment we are playing well and getting the goals. It’s a case of staying calm and keeping it going.”

Liverpool currently sit 4 pints off the top but they have a game in hand on leaders Chelsea. That game is Wednesday night at home to Sunderland and a win there reduces Chelsea’s advantage to a single point.
