Team news ahead of the Monday's Premier League match, with Glen Johnson hoping to return for Liverpool against Wigan.

FOOTBALL Premier League Liverpool's Glen Johnson - 0

Wigan v Liverpool (Monday, 8pm)

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez expects to have an almost fully-fit squad to choose from for the Monday night clash at the DW Stadium.

Charles N'Zogbia will undergo a late fitness test but should have overcome his knee injury in time. The same applies to Paul Scharner (groin), who came through an international with Austria this week. Steven Gohouri is the only major doubt as he continues his recovery from a back problem.

Defender Glen Johnson is set for a comeback for Liverpool.

The England right-back has been sidelined with a knee problem since the end of December but is on the verge of a recall.

Daniel Agger's knee injury sustained against Blackburn last weekend is unlikely to keep him out, while fellow centre-back Sotirios Kyrgiakos returns after a three-match suspension.
