Glen Johnson gives thanks to team-mates

GLEN JOHNSON believes he has his Liverpool team-mates to thank for the flying start to his Anfield career.

The £17million right-back enjoyed a dream home debut in Wednesday night's 4-0 victory over Stoke as he capped a fine performance with his first goal for the club.

Johnson also impressed in last Sunday's defeat at Spurs when his surging run into the box won a spot-kick.

“It’s been absolutely brilliant since I arrived here," he said.

"The lads and everyone at the club have been fantastic.

“It’s been great for me to settle in here quickly and I think that has shown in my performances already so I’m delighted.”

Johnson admits he had been relishing his Anfield debut ever since he left Portsmouth for Merseyside earlier this summer and it did not disappoint.

“It was all I expected and more," he said.

"When the fans are signing 'You'll Never Walk Alone' it makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and to hear them singing it for you is very special.

"It was great to run out at Anfield. To get the three points, score in front of the fans and keep a clean sheet made it a perfect night.

"Obviously it was brilliant to score my first for Liverpool and to do it on my home debut was amazing, but the win was more important to get us out of the starting blocks.

"At a club like Liverpool you don’t want to lose any match, so to lose the first game of the season was disappointing.

“But the lads showed great character to put that behind us and hopefully we can go on a good run now."

Defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos will complete his £1.5million move from AEK Athens to Liverpool if he passes his medical today.

With Martin Skrtel suffering from a cracked jaw and Daniel Agger still out with a back problem, the 30-year-old Greek international could go straight into the squad for Monday's showdown with Aston Villa at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Reds assistant manager Sammy Lee has been charged by the Football Association with improper conduct following his clash with fourth official Stuart Attwell during last Sunday's defeat to Tottenham.

Lee, who has until August 26 to respond, was incensed when the Reds were denied a late penalty and his protests led to him being sent from the dugout by referee Phil Dowd.
