Johnson: We deserved point

Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson remain positive and claim that first win is coming soon

Liverpool's players felt their point at Sunderland was the least they deserved for their efforts.

• Sunderland 1-1 Liverpool

The Reds remain without a win this season following Saturday's 1-1 draw, with Luis Suarez cancelling out Steven Fletcher's opener. A first three points under new boss Brendan Rodgers continues to elude them, but Glen Johnson feels a win would have been deserved.

"We kept pushing for that second goal,'' he told ESPN. "Their goal was a disappointing goal to concede but the lads dug in and fought hard.

"We tried hard, we came out in the second half and got better. We never stopped working hard. We have played well in the majority of our games this season.''

Johnson's thoughts were shared by captain Steven Gerrard.

"We knew change wouldn't happen overnight,'' he said. "We have tried hard and even though we drew, we completely controlled the game. No--one watching can say we didn't deserve it.''

Rodgers himself was pleased with his side's application.

"I was very pleased with the performance. The commitment and quality was outstanding and the only disappointment was the goal,'' he said. "We upped the tempo in the second half. This is a very good result, coming to Sunderland. The balance of the team was very good and it bodes well going forward.''
