Liverpool star targets United

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has identified next weekend's clash with Manchester United as his potential return from injury.

Johnson sustained a hamstring injury in the loss to Stoke at the Britannia Stadium almost a month ago and has since missed four games for the Reds.

But the 27-year-old full-back's rehabilitation has gone well thus far, and he hopes to be lining up against Sir Alex Ferguson's side at Anfield on October 15.

"I'm feeling good at the moment and I've been doing plenty of running," Johnson told the official Liverpool website.


"I've just started doing ball work outside in training so I reckon it won't be too long now.

"I'm working hard and it would be nice to be back in the squad for the Man United game. Hopefully I can make the bench anyway, so fingers crossed."

Liverpool enter into the encounter with United looking to make it four consecutive wins against the Barclays Premier League champions on Merseyside.

Last season's fixture between the north west rivals ended 3-0 to Liverpool, with Dirk Kuyt stunning United with a hat-trick.
