Glen Johnson believes Liverpool’s performances this season have re-established Anfield as a fortress.
The Reds recorded another home win to send them top of the Premier League table, comfortably beating Tottenham 4-0 on Sunday.
It was the 14th home win from 16 games this season, whilst Liverpool have also fired 48 goals in front of their home fans.
And Johnson believes no team will be looking forward to visiting Anfield between now and the end of the season.
“At the moment, teams definitely can’t be looking forward to coming to Anfield to play,” Johnson told reporters following the final whistle.
“Three years ago, people were not so worried. But I think we’re getting it back to the name and the place that people see Anfield as.
“It’s what we’ve been doing all season. We work hard and we try to put the opposition under pressure right from the beginning.
“It just shows how hard we have been working out on the training ground and on the pitch as well. We have tried to make it difficult for other teams and there’s days like today when you score three or four goals and it’s comfortable.”
With Liverpool now top of the table with six games to play, you could feel the air of expectancy inside Anfield yesterday that the Reds are due to end their long wait for a league title.
However Johnson insists they have looked no further then next Sunday’s clash with West Ham at Upton Park.
“We’ll just worry about West Ham,” he insisted. “All we can do is worry about the next game. We don’t need to be thinking now about winning six games, all we have to do is [worry about] the next one. After we’ve played West Ham, we’ll worry about the next team.
“Of course it’s difficult, but if we can try and keep calm and keep the pressure off ourselves, we can keep putting performances in like today.”
