Liverpool have confirmed Glen Johnson suffered a medial ligament injury to his right knee during Tuesday night's match at Aston Villa.
The England right-back was assessed by the club's medical team at Melwood and underwent a scan which revealed the extent of the injury which forced him to limp off after 88 minutes of the 1-0 victory at Villa Park.
A club spokesman said: "A scan has revealed a tear in the medial ligament in Glen's right knee. The player will see a specialist tomorrow (Thursday), after which we should be able to more accurately determine the length of his rehabilitation period."
