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."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
