Glen Johnson was quick to pay tribute to Charlie Adam after the Scottish international played a major role in his Stamford Bridge winner.

The former Chelsea right-back netted a superb individual goal to seal the three points for Kenny Dalglish’s side after he waltzed through the Londoners rearguard after being found by an exquisite pass from Adam.

Johnson told Liverpoolfc.tv: “It was fantastic to score the winner and it was a great pass from Charlie. I told him after the game I had been waiting over 75 minutes for that pass!

“It was brilliant for Charlie because he also played a big role in our opening goal.

“It’s sometimes difficult in a tight game to find the space but when you have a player like Charlie, once is often enough for you to get the chance to score.

“I tried not to celebrate too much because I had some great years during my time at Chelsea but when you get a winner like that it’s hard not to celebrate.

“We completely dominated the first half but Chelsea are a great side and we knew they would come back at us, but we kept going and kept believing and got the winner.

“The lads can take fantastic belief from this victory. We know our last home game was disappointing but then we come to Chelsea and win, which is football sometimes.”
