Johnson suffers knee injury

Liverpool have today confirmed Glen Johnson suffered a medial ligament injury to his right knee during last night’s match at Aston Villa.

The England right-back was assessed by the club’s medical team at Melwood earlier today and underwent a scan which revealed the extent of the injury which forced him to limp off after 88 minutes of the 1-0 victory at Villa Park.

A club spokesman said: “A scan today has revealed a tear in the medial ligament in Glen’s right knee.

“The player will see a specialist tomorrow, after which we should be able to more accurately determine the length of his rehabilitation period.”
