Johnson returns for Blues showdown

Published Add your comment

Manchester City's title ambitions have been boosted by the news that winger Adam Johnson is set to return for Sunday's trip to champions Chelsea.

Johnson hasn't figured for City since January's Barclays Premier League visit to Aston Villa after being ruled out by an ankle injury.

Ahead of schedule, the England international is ready for a return to the first team, starting at title rivals Chelsea.


"My ankle is almost there and I'm back in training again so I should be playing again soon, all being well," Johnson told the club's official website.

"When I first picked up the injury, you are given a realistic target to aim for in terms of playing again, but it's usually longer than it will actually be.

"The medical team have to err on the side of caution so you take your time rehabilitating."

The 23-year-old's return comes at the perfect time for Roberto Mancini's side, who are still fighting on three fronts at the back end of the season.
