Liverpool will welcome Glen Johnson back into the fold for Saturday's visit of Fulham to Anfield.

The full-back missed last weekend's defeat at Arsenal due to a localised infection in his jaw that required a trip to hospital.

However, Johnson was subsequently discharged and returned home on Saturday evening - and is available for the clash with the Cottagers.

"Glen Johnson will be fit," Brendan Rodgers told a pre-match press conference at Melwood.

"He's fine. He's trained this week - it was just one of those peculiar things that happened.

"Maybe if it had been a day earlier, he may have been able to play.

"But he's fine for the game and has looked good in training this week."
