Most football fans want Liverpool to win the Premier League this season to “spice things up”, according to Glen Johnson.

The Reds continued their title bid with an impressive 6-3 victory at Cardiff City on Saturday to leave Brendan Rodgers’ men second in the Premier League table.

I guess the neutrals will be packing a punch for us. We must be good to watch

Liverpool can move to within one point of league leaders Chelsea if they win their game in hand in the run-in.

And Johnson feels that football fans in general would like to see the Merseyside club lift the trophy in May.

“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.”
