Liverpool Legend Gives Verdict on Return of Reds’ Star - originally posted on Soccerlens.comLiverpool legend John Aldridge believes the return of Glen Johnson from injury has been given the Reds a major boost for upcoming Premier League fixtures.
The England international injured his ankle during the Merseyside club’s 1-0 victory over their rivals Manchester United at Anfield in September. The right-back has been out of action since then and could be in contention for Liverpool’s tie against Newcastle United after declaring himself fit for the weekend clash
Brendan Rodgers has changed the system in the 29-year-old full back’s absence, having only three players in his side’s defence despite having Andre Wisdom and Martin Kelly as the options on the bench.
In addition to this, the former Swansea manager has also deployed Kolo Toure on the right back position in certain occasions and the return of Johnson from injury could see Liverpool shift to regular back four in their defence.
