Johnson, who missed Wednesday's match against Manchester City with a quad injury, is expected to play Saturday at Liverpool, manager Gus Poyet said Thursday.

Johnson bagged eight goals last season and seemed poised for a breakout this term, but it hasn't happened, as he's netted just once in 11 games and has failed to record an assist. While a trip to Anfield on Saturday could help his cold streak, he can't be expected to produce significantly.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson got a start Saturday and got off two shots in the 0-0 draw with Leicester City.

Johnson got a start in what seemed to be a more forward position to possibly get him back in form. He looked more effective as a forward, so Sunderland could stick with the 4-3-3 formation to see if they can get out of the offensive rut they're in. Sunderland have a nightmare schedule approaching, playing Chelsea and Man City in their next two matches.

Johnson got the nod to start Sunday, but didn't record any shots in the 1-1 draw to Everton.

Johnson has been on and off the bench in his past four and it really seems to be messing with his rhythm recording only one goal all season long. These no shot performances are disappointing and it remains to be seen if he will even stay in the starting XI. Keep an eye on Johnson as they travel to Leicester after the international break.

Johnson was an unused sub in the 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday

Johnson has struggled for most of the season and has now been a bench player in two of the last three matches. He is still one of Sunderland's best offensive weapons, so its definitely a situation to monitor as the season progresses.

Johnson's struggles continued Saturday as he failed to record a shot against Arsenal in the 0-2 loss.

Johnson only has one goal this season and has had numerous games with no shots. This is not a good sign for Sunderland as he is their most dynamic playmaker. With a favorable schedule coming he may have a chance to get off the schneid facing Palace, Everton, and Leicester his next three matches.

Johnson was used as a sub in the 8-0 drubbing by Southampton on Saturday.

A rare non-start for Johnson as he'll happily say he didn't start this disaster for Sunderland. They put out a lackluster secondary lineup and it really showed as they were just atrocious Saturday. Look for Johnson to start next weekend in another tough match against Arsenal.

Johnson scored his first goal of the year in the 2-2 draw to Tottenham Saturday

Johnson finally got of the schnide making his first contribution of the year Saturday. Johnson is a notoriously streaky player, so now may be the time to get him into your lineup as goals come in bunches for this Englishman. With that said, Sunderland face a stifling Burnley defense next weekend, so it will be a tough task to find the back of the net.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Johnson was unable to contribute for Sunderland in their 0-1 loss to QPR Saturday.

Johnson is a very streaky player and he seems to be in one of his cold streaks at the moment. Wait for the big breakout though, as when he starts scoring he can't stop. Sunderland host Spurs in two weeks after a small two week break.
