Bradley Johnson says Liverpool are just another team in the way of three points.TALKING to press ahead of Liverpool's visit to Carrow Road on Sunday, Norwich City midfielder Bradley Johnson insisted that with the right approach, work rate and belief, the three points could be won against the high-flying Reds.
"Everyone's talking about how Liverpool have done well this year and they have, they're a great side. But on Sunday it's all about us. If we get our attitude right and our work rate right I think we can do something on Sunday," he said.
Neil Adams' first game in charge ended in a narrow defeat at Fulham last week, despite a frequently dominant performance from City. Johnson said the nature of the Canaries' showing has been enough to give the players belief heading into Sunday's game.
"We were disappointed after Fulham. We all thought we should have won. But the manager has come in and told us to put behind us, and to take the positives into this game on Sunday.
"We've had a good week's training and we know what Liverpool are about. We've got to do what we're good at, and that's get in their faces, make it a messy game for them, and hopefully get the three points."
Johnson said that while Liverpool have plenty to fight for in their bid to claim the Barclays Premier League crown, City's players have even more.
"I want to stay in this league and I'm sure every one of the lads does too, so we have to go out there on Sunday and work our socks off and hopefully the fans will get behind us and push us over the line.
"On Sunday we're not thinking Liverpool are the champions - they're just a team who are stopping us from getting three points. We've got to go out there and knock them out of the way.
"We know this club deserves to be in the Premier League and we've got to keep them there."
