Johnson has been sidelined with a knee problem since the end of December but he is back in training and could be involved at the DW Stadium.

There is further good news for Liverpool, with Daniel Agger's knee injury unlikely to keep him out and Sotirios Kyrgiakos returning after a three-match suspension.

Kick-off on Monday night is at 8pm.

Reds (from): Reina, Johnson, Degen, Agger, Carragher, Krygiakos, Insua, Gerrard, Lucas, Aquilani, Benayoun, Riera, Rodriguez, Ngog, Kuyt, Torres, Cavalieri, Pacheco, Spearing, Darby, Babel, Kelly.
