Brendan Rodgers’ stylish Reds’ side are just four points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea in the race for the title and face the Blues at Anfield next month.
Liverpool are currently on a four-game winning streak in the league and Johnson says the squad feel as though they can win every match at present.
“We believe we can win every game and I remember having that feeling at Chelsea,” he told the Daily Mail.
“The first year we won the title (2005) we could be losing 2-0 and still think we would win, and we usually would. That was confidence at its peak and we are moving towards that at Liverpool.
“You have to believe you can win the league and until there are not enough points available we’ll keep thinking we can. We’ve got 10 cup finals, really, because we can’t afford to lose games or drop many points because Manchester City and Chelsea won’t.”
League Cup winner Man City are currently two points behind Liverpool and trail Chelsea by six. But Manuel Pellegrini’s side have two games in hand and Johnson has identified the Etihad Stadium club as title favourites.
“City are favourites because they could field a second team that would be competitive, and you can’t compete with that. So we will need a bit of luck but we are definitely good enough.”
Despite Liverpool’s brilliant season so far, Johnson maintains that the goal is simply to finish inside the top four and secure Champions League football.
“Our goal at the start of the season was to finish in the top four and that is still our minimum aim. Finishing third, second or winning the title is a bonus but we are in a good position.
“The character and mentality in this squad are different. There were games last season when we battered teams and didn’t get results. We’ve got more of a killer instinct this year.”
