London: Liverpool defender Glen Johnson will be out for around a month with a groin injury, British media reported on Wednesday.
The 30-year-old tore his groin during the first half of Liverpool`s 3-0 defeat against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday and according to the Liverpool Echo, the England defender will be missing for at least a month.
Johnson, who is out of contract at the end of the season, will undergo a scan to confirm the full extent of the injury, but he expected to miss Liverpool`s hectic Christmas and New Year Premier League programme.
In Johnson`s absence, Spanish defender Javier Manquillo is likely to be recalled for Liverpool`s League Cup quarter-final against Championship (second tier) side Bournemouth on Wednesday.
