PLAYERS: Glen Johnson


Liverpool are experiencing a mini-injury crisis at the moment with several important players missing, including Glen Johnson, Martin Kelly, Charlie Adam, Craig Bellamy, and Lucas Leiva. Adam has joined Lucas on the long-term injury list, but what about Johnson - will he be available for selection any time soon?

Things are looking good for Johnson; the right-back started training again on Monday and he's working his way back to fitness. He tweeted:

"Was great being back outside running today! #GettingCloser"

Lucas is out until next season but how is his rehabilitation going? The Brazilian also provided an update on Twitter:

"My rehab is going well and hopefully I will be fit for next season. It was a bad injury so I need to recover properly to be strong again"

Liverpool legend John Aldridge recently highlighted the absence of Craig Bellamy, and suggested that he may have had a bust-up with Dalglish behind the scenes. I doubt that's true, and the idea that the club has not kept us updated about what's going on is not true either.

In his pre-QPR press conference, Dalglish confirmed that Bellamy was injured. He was cagey about the nature of the injury, describing it only as a 'niggle'.

Then, in his pre-Wigan press conference, Dalglish confirmed that there were 'no new injuries added to what we had before'. Obviously, when he said 'what we had before', Dalglish was referring to the injuries of Johnson and Bellamy.

With a whole week's rest, hopefully Johnson and Bellamy will be fit for selection against Newcastle. Bellamy especially would be a huge boost.
