Liverpool defender Glen Johnson is hoping to be part of the Reds' matchday squad for their Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester United a week on Saturday as he continues his recovery from a hamstring problem.

Having originally sustained the injury in a pre-season friendly against Valencia, Johnson aggravated it when making his comeback appearance as a substitute in the defeat to Stoke on September 10. The England international has not featured since, but now has his sights set on United's visit to Anfield on October 15.

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

"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."
