The England international sustained an ankle injury in the September 1 win over Manchester United which was supposed to keep him out for around 11 weeks.
However, Johnson posted on Twitter that he is looking to return much sooner than that.
Injury doesnt seem as bad as first thought, hopefully be back sooner than originally expected! #BetterNews— Glen Johnson (@glen_johnson) September 12, 2013
