Glen Johnson believes Liverpool are capable of staying at the top of the Premier League table after hoisting themselves above Chelsea.

The Reds moved to the Premier League’s summit for the first time since December after Liverpool were emphatic 4-0 winners against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday.

Forget the league table, just win at Upton Park. Being top now is only significant if we stay there

Brendan Rodgers’s side are two points clear of second-placed Chelsea, with the Blues and Manchester City to make the trip to Merseyside in April.

And Johnson underlined the Liverpool squad’s desire to remain at the top of the table for the remainder of the Premier League campaign.

“Any team who is top of the league at this stage deserves to be there,” Johnson told the ECHO.

“This is a difficult league with a lot of tough games but I think we can stay there.

“This is a fantastic club. Everyone involved here loves it and wants to win the league badly. We want to get the club back where it should be.

“Playing in the best league in the world, the hardest thing is to go game by game.”

Johnson added: “We just need to think about West Ham away next Sunday now and concentrate on that.

“I’m sure everyone is looking forward to those big home games against City and Chelsea but we have to take care of West Ham first otherwise those games might not be as relevant. We have to make sure we win our next game.

“Forget the league table, just win at Upton Park. Being top now is only significant if we stay there.”
