Tiger Fight, October 21. Glenn Johnson, who has played for Liverpool and Chelsea, recently accepted an interview with the Daily Mirror. In the interview, he said that Chelsea was able to maintain an advantage when he was ahead, but Now the situation has changed. He believes that Chelsea's defense still has a big problem. Although Chelsea have scored a lot of goals this season, they have also lost a lot of goals. Johnson also said that the away game against Ajax will be the toughest match for Liverpool in the Champions League group stage.
Glen Johnson mentioned: "For Liverpool, the away game against Ajax will be their most difficult match in the Champions League group stage this season. Van Dijk’s injury will have an impact on Liverpool. Will take advantage of this."
"Van Dijk’s injury will also make Liverpool change. They will face new problems and opportunities. Liverpool need to prove that they are not only relying on Van Dijk."
“范·迪克（Van Dijk）的受伤也将使利物浦发生变化。他们将面临新的问题和机遇。利物浦需要证明他们不仅依靠范·迪克（Van Dijk）。”
"Now the outside world is looking forward to what Liverpool can do without Van Dijk. I think the Champions League will be more like an international game. The opponents may not push the front line too far against Liverpool. ."
"Liverpool needs defensive players who can control the pace of the game, and I think Fabinho can do that. Fabinho performed very well with the ball. I think Liverpool may let Fabinho play As a central defender in the Champions League, of course, Liverpool definitely hope that Van Dijk can play."
Glen Johnson also talked about Chelsea in the interview. He thinks Chelsea’s defense still has big problems. Johnson said: “I think Chelsea can qualify from the group.”
"Sevilla will definitely be Chelsea’s biggest opponent in the group. Rennes is a good team, but I don’t think they can compete with Sevilla and Chelsea. Not very intense."
"Chelsea have scored a lot of goals this season, but they have also lost a lot of goals. If Chelsea can't stabilize their defense, then they will definitely have more problems."
"Chelsea used to be able to stabilize the advantage after taking the lead, but now they can't do that. I think this is the biggest change that Chelsea has made in recent years."
"To be honest, I think Chelsea's current defense is still too loose. Their defenders don't know how to help each other, and they don't cooperate well."
Johnson also talked about his views on Manchester City, he said: "Man City should be the strongest in their group, just like Liverpool."
"Man City will definitely not underestimate any opponent, and I think Manchester City can easily qualify from the group."
"In view of Guardiola's previous achievements in leading Manchester City in the Champions League, I think Manchester City may not have enough patience now, but you must not forget that Manchester City still has a great lineup and a top coach."
When talking about Manchester United, Glen Johnson said: “Manchester United’s group should be the toughest group among all Premier League teams in the Champions League this season. Leipzig has achieved great results in the past few years.”
"Leipzig has achieved a lot of incredible victories in the Champions League before. Their lineup is also very good. Although some of their players are not very famous, Leipzig has played very well. The players in their team are I am very clear about my role."
"So I think Manchester United will definitely have a lot of problems, and I think Paris will qualify for the top spot in the group, and Manchester United and Leipzig will compete for another qualifying spot."
