But England man was criticised for his performance against Southampton
Monday 18 August 2014
Liverpool players surprised defender Glen Johnson by throwing him a secret birthday bash as the defender turned 30.
The players, celebrating a hard-fought 2-1 win over Southampton on Sunday afternoon, also added comedy masks of the defender. Team-mates Brad Jones, Joe Allen, Philippe Coutinho, Sebastian Coates, Fabio Borini and Lucas Leiva donned the masks for their night out.
However, the masks didn't leave Liverpool fans dreaming of a team of Glen Johnsons, in fact, the defender was roundly criticised for his performance in the win against Southampton.
Multiple users on Twitter were vociferous in their criticism of Johnson's perfomance, who failed to record a single tackle against Southampton.
With full backs Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno newly arrived at Anfield this summer, the England defender could find himself surplus to requirements in Brendan Rodgers' squad.
Raheem Sterling put Liverpool in front before Nathaniel Clyne's second-half equaliser, but Daniel Sturridge scored a late winner to give the home side all three points.
