Javier Manquillo will likely move into the starting XI in place of Johnson, who had posted two clean sheets in his last four Premier League matches.

It looked to be a groin injury, but Johnson will undergo additional scans after the match to determine the extent of the ailment.

Johnson is reportedly preparing for a transfer this summer after being disappointed with the wage cut Liverpool offered with their new contract for the player, reports Sky Sports.

Johnson is in the final year of his contract with Liverpool. The defender said the club knows his position and needs to put forth a contract that he can either accept or reject.

Liverpool offered Johnson a new two-year contract with the club that would cut his current salary in half, reports the Daily Mail.

The defender's current agreement expires at the end of the season. He now has the decision to stay with Liverpool and take a pay cut, or move elsewhere in search of more money.

Johnson returned from a thigh injury to sub on for Javier Manquillo in the 64th minute of Saturday's 2-1 win over West Brom, finishing with one successful clearance.

Johnson had not played since suffering the injury in late August against Manchester City and he'll now have to fight for his starting spot against Manquillo, who has held down the job since Johnson went down. The Liverpool back line has been pretty leaky anyway, so while Johnson does get involved in the attack when he plays, he doesn't generate a lot of clean sheets.

Johnson has been ruled out of Saturday's Merseyside derby due to a thigh injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Johnson has been sidelined since the end of August with the injury, though he could make his return as soon as next weekend (Oct. 4) against West Brom.

Johnson will not play in Liverpool's Premier League match against Aston Villa due to a thigh injury, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Johnson was unable to play against Tottenham before the international break, so it's a little concerning that the time off didn't allow him to recover. Javier Manquillo will likely get another start in Johnson's stead.

Johnson (thigh) should be considered doubtful for Liverpool's upcoming clash with Tottenham on Sunday after manager Brendan Rodgers said, "Johnson is probably the one that it could be difficult for, with a thigh problem".

Johnson will most likely be replaced by new signing Javier Manquillo and if the young Spaniard does well, Johnson's place in the starting XI could be in jeopardy upon his return.
