Bradley Johnson: Has played a key role in Norwich's recent unbeaten run

The 25-year-old former Leeds United man is relishing his opportunity to play in the Premier League and has been a key part of Chris Hughton's team's recent unbeaten run.

Johnson has struck up a good partnership with Norwegian enforcer Alex Tettey, who could be back in contention following a thigh problem against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

However, he knows he cannot rest on his laurels, as he said: "I am playing my best football, am enjoying my football, and getting picked every week.

"But I know it can change in an instant, so I am not getting too complacent and not getting ahead of myself.

"I just want to get picked every Saturday and that comes down to training hard and being fit and available."

Johnson added: "I have learned a lot more from last season. It was my first year in the Premier League and this season I am more disciplined in the job I do.

"I am a holding midfielder and more of a defensive player, but I am learning every game I go into.

"This is a great league to be in and I want to be in here for as long as I can and learn more."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
