Johnson withdrew from the Liverpool team less than an hour before kick-off, after being taken into hospital with an infection, although the Daily Mail says the full-back has now been released and will return to Merseyside with his team-mates.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers said: "Probably about half-an-hour before I named the team, as we were doing our final preparation, he had to come out of the team. It was a medical issue that he had to go to hospital with. It was unfortunate that he couldn't play because he has been in great form. It was illness."
