Glen Johnson: Liverpool defender close to a full recovery after an ankle injury

Rodgers' side host Crystal Palace on Saturday before the final round of World Cup qualifiers, with a trip to Newcastle to follow when the Premier League resumes on 19 October.

And Rodgers is optimistic he will be able to call upon Glen Johnson, Aly Cissokho and Joe Allen for the trip to St James' Park.

Johnson has not played since picking up an ankle injury in the 1-0 win over Manchester United on 1 September, while Cissokho and Allen have been out of action with ankle and hamstring injuries suffered in the Capital One Cup clash with Notts County in August.

"Glen's out on the field and hopefully after the international break he'll be ready to come back into the squad," said Rodgers.

"We're okay. Aly Cissokho has trained over the course of the last week or so, so I think after the international break he'll be fine and fit. Joe Allen likewise - he should be ready for the Newcastle game.

"Coutinho will not be long after. Obviously Sebastian Coates will be that bit longer and has a bit more to do yet, but apart from that we're getting back to our numbers now."

isgusting. Shambolic. Pathetic. Embarassing. Inept. Below par. Painful. Horrible. Sickening. Frustrating. Wasteful. 11 adjectives to describe the 11 professionals on the pitch. I have never been so frustrated. Losing I can handle, but negligence and years of the same mistake is just becoming a joke now. One that isn't even funny anymore.
