Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson hails "class" teammate Raheem Sterling as the club continue their Premier League title charge.

Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson praised teammate Raheem Sterling, who he believes has been "class" for the Reds this season.

The 19-year-old has been an impressive addition to the Merseyside outfit's attacking force alongside Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez.

"He has been class," Johnson told the club's official website. "When he first burst onto the scene, everyone could see how good he could be.

"I know he had a couple of months where he wasn't in the team as much as he would have liked, but I think he has bounced back better for that. At the moment, he's probably one of the first names on the teamsheet."

Liverpool currently have a two-point lead over Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table, with six games left to play.
