Defender Glen Johnson may be struggling to be fit for Liverpool's home clash with Birmingham on Monday but he is convinced he is part of a squad good enough to turn around recent disastrous form.[LNB]The England man is still a major doubt with a calf injury that kept him out of the midweek Champions League draw in Lyon, and he is not expected to be fit to face the midlanders.[LNB]But he maintains the current Liverpool squad can still win major honours despite an erratic start to the season.[LNB]Johnson said: 'People keep talking about us losing the title, they were doing it after we lost the first game of the season.[LNB]'We have got a fantastic group of players here. Everyone has been disappointed with the performances and results because we've got enough about us to do a lot better.[LNB]'There has always been a belief that we are equipped to beat any team we face but a lot has gone against us, especially luck, and it has cost us games.'[LNB]Liverpool will play a waiting game with the fitness of a string of top stars, including Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard, as they prepare for Monday's match.[LNB]Striker Torres returned to the club's Melwood training ground yesterday after his whistle-stop trip to Valencia.
