Johnson (knee) is out for Saturday's match against Manchester City.

Johnson, who was initially ruled out for four-to-five weeks, has missed two months and counting with a knee injury. The 31-year-old was a fixture at right back for the team before suffering this injury, but looks as if he might return in time to play before the season draws to a close. He has three assists in 25 Premier League appearances (all starts).

Johnson will be sidelined for four to five weeks due to the knee injury he suffered against Bournemouth earlier this month, manager Mark Hughes said Friday.

Villa have really struggled to score this season, so losing out on an opportunity to face them at home is a big one for Johnson's fantasy owners. Additionally, the injury is apparently more serious than the club initially believed, leaving them with a big hole to fill. Geoff Cameron is returning from his own injury and could potentially take Johnson spot, with Phil Bardsley also a possibility.

Johnson left Saturday's match against Bournemouth in the second half with a knee injury, and manager Mark Hughes said it "is a little bit more of a concern" than the injury suffered to Marc Muniesa, who left with a hamstring ailment.

Johnson was replaced by Mame Diouf, which only exemplifies how shallow the defensive corps is at Stoke. Thankfully for the club, they have two weeks before their next Premier League match, which comes Feb. 27 against Aston Villa.

Johnson (knock) is starting Tuesday against Manchester United.

The Red Devils haven't been putting up a large number of goals this season, though they still have very capable attackers, making Johnson a bit of a risky play in fantasy formats that rely on clean sheets for defender value.

Johnson did not play in Saturday's FA Cup match against Crystal Palace due to a knock, but he returned to light training Monday and could play in Tuesday's Premier League match against Manchester United, manager Mark Hughes said.

Johnson has been a steady force along the Potters' defensive line, and while he is able to move up in the attack, he may not be given such freedom against United, with Ryan Shawcross still out with a back injury.

Johnson provided one cross, won a pair of tackles and made four interceptions in a clean-sheet effort versus Arsenal on Sunday.

The fullback wasn't quite as involved on the offensive end as he typically is, but he put in a sound defensive effort to help stifle the first-place Gunners. Johnson continues to serve as one of the better fantasy defenders out there due to his typical inclusion in the attack paired with Stoke's sound defensive record, although he could be forced to sit back again next week versus Leicester.

Johnson tallied an assist, one key pass, one dribble and three interceptions along with a clean sheet in the stunning 2-0 home win over Manchester United on Boxing Day.

Memphis Depay gifted the ball to Johnson in the Red Devils’ penalty area with all the space and time in the world. The right back took a few steps towards the goal and made a perfect cut-back pass to Bojan Krkic who made no mistake and opened the Potters’ tally for the day. With Stoke possessing one of the best defenses and goalkeepers in the league (only three defeats and eight clean sheets in the last 11 Premier League games) along with three assists for the season, the veteran could be a very safe fantasy option regardless of match up.

Johnson (knock) is starting Saturday against Manchester City.

Johnson left the midweek Capital One Cup match with the ailment, but it was never considered serious, and he'll slot right back into the starting XI against a very strong Man City attack.
