Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson is delighted seeing Raul Meireles now winning praise.

For victory over Stoke City, Meireles struck the first goal with a great hit and Johnson believes the new attacking role given to him by Kenny Dalglish is paying off with rich dividends.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "Raul has got more of a free role now and he scored another great goal. That's three goals in four games now so the longer he keeps that up the better."

Johnson played in a new position himself during the victory over Tony Pulis's side and he did an excellent job for the team at left wing-back.

He said: "I enjoyed it. I'm pleased to play anywhere so I will try and do a good job whatever position I play."
