Glen Johnson celebrates his goal for Liverpool FC against Chelsea
GLEN JOHNSON believes Liverpool FC are on the verge of handing out a Premier League beating as their finishing frustrations approach boiling point.
Despite creating a multitude of chances, Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool FC side have struggled to convert those opportunities into goals, scoring just 18 times in 15 league games so far this season.
Of those teams in the top 10, only Stoke City have netted fewer with Liverpool FC striking the woodwork more than any other top-flight team.
Such issues have seen Dalglish’s men draw five of their eight home league games while they were again profligate in securing only a 1-0 triumph against Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.
But Glen Johnson is convinced Liverpool FC will soon click into gear and administer a thumping.
“Definitely,” said the right-back. “We’re coming close. We had so many chances and on another day with a bit more luck you score 80% of your chances and you find yourself 6-0 up or something.
“As long as you win the game it doesn’t really matter but the way we are playing it’s coming.”
While Luis Suarez’s winner on Saturday was his eighth of the campaign, Liverpool’s next top scorers are Andy Carroll and Maxi Rodriguez with just three goals.
Charlie Adam and Craig Bellamy are the only other players to have scored more than once this season, and Johnson admits Dalglish’s men must start contributing throughout the team.
“When you are playing and winning, nobody cares who scores,” said the defender.
“But the more players who are scoring the better it is for the team. You aren’t relying on certain players.
“As long as we keep creating chances, no matter who is playing up front they are going to put them away.”
