Glen Johnson believes that neutral football fans want Liverpool to clinch the Premier League title this season.

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson believes that football fans in general want to see the Reds lift the Premier League title this season.

The Merseyside outfit, who finished seventh last season, are surprise contenders for the title, which is also being contested by Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal.

Liverpool are currently second in the table, four points adrift of leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.

"I think just to spice things up the neutrals would want to see us win it," The Express quotes Johnson as saying. "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 we do provide that."

Liverpool, who came from behind twice to beat Cardiff City 6-3 on Saturday, have eight games left to play.
