The Wearsiders followed a 2-2 draw at the Etihad Stadium with a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge to help boost their chances of remaining in the Premier League next season.

Although they remain at the base of the table, they are just three points from safety with a game in hand on each of the three teams immediately above them.

Three of their final four games are at home - against Cardiff, West Brom and Swansea - plus an away trip to Old Trafford.

And Johnson said: "There are still a good few teams who are still right in it yet.

"We said after the Chelsea game, there will be a few teams above us now thinking 'Oh no'.

"If I put myself in their position, after the result came in on Saturday evening, I'd be thinking, 'It's just got even tougher'.

"We have definitely given everyone a scare now and the momentum should be with us.

"With three home games, we couldn't really ask for a better run-in, three home games against teams in and around us."

Watch Sunderland v Cardiff live on Sky Sports 1 at midday on Sunday.

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.

Sterling Case For Leaving 'Bigger' Club

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
