Winger signed from Manchester City late in transfer window and has yet to make home League debut.
Sunderland new-boy Adam Johnson is battling to be fit to face Liverpool in this weekends’ Premier League clash in what would be his home League debut for his new club.
The winger joined Sunderland in the final week of the summer transfer window for a £10m fee after seeing his chances of first-team football limited at Champions Manchester City.
Johnson has revealed that he had a poor relationship with city boss Roberto Mancini and realised it was important for his development to move on from the big-spenders in order to secure a regular starting spot.
He made his League debut for the Black Cats in their 2-2 draw away to Swansea prior to the international break but sustained a thigh injury in training with England, ruling him out of their World Cup Qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine, as announced by Sunderland.
Sunderland fans will be desperate for the former-Middlesbrough man to be fit for the clash with Liverpool and will be hoping he can start producing the form that saw him snapped up by big-spenders Manchester City 2 years ago.
Johnson has been capped 12 times by England, scoring 2 goals.
