Man City boss Eriksson keen on Johnson return

Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson hopes midfielder Michael Johnson will be fit for their next match against Everton on February 25.

The 19-year-old played a major part in City's flying start to the season but has been out of action since December with a niggling abdominal injury.

Johnson played in a reserve-team match on Monday, and Eriksson told the club's official website: "Michael did very well for 45 minutes, and the positive is that he had no discomfort afterwards.

"I hope he has no setbacks, and if things go as I think he would be ready for Everton."
