Liverpool fullback Johnson: We should be topping group

Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson says they've underachieved in the Champions League this season.

The Reds have just one win to show from their opening three Group E matches but the defender is confident they have the quality and experience to bounce back when they face Lyon on Wednesday.

"The Champions League is the best club competition there is," he told liverpoolfc.tv.

"I played in it a few times with Chelsea and playing in it again was something that I was looking forward to doing.

"I would love to go on and win it with Liverpool. But I don't want to look too far ahead because we have made things very difficult for ourselves in the last two games.

"On paper we should be winning this group. The Champions League is just as important to us as the Premier League.

"They are both massive competitions and we like to do well in them both. The further that we get in the Champions League and the closer we get to the title, the happier the club will be.

"But playing in Europe, as we have shown over the last few years, suits our style."
