Liverpool's Johnson should be fit for weekend

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson expects to be fit for the Reds' crunch clash with Manchester United at the weekend. Johnson missed last night's Champions League defeat to Olympique Lyonnais with a groin strain he had picked up in training.

"It is a lot better today, I think I will be alright for Sunday," Johnson told Sky Sports.

"We haven't tested it today, just soft tissue work and massage, but it seems a lot freer than it did yesterday."

The England defender was also hopeful that striker Fernando Torres would be fit for Sunday, though he was less optimistic as far as Steven Gerrard was concerned.

He added: "I think 'Nando might be alright for Sunday, but I am not too sure about Stevie."
