Hodgson criticises defender Glen Johnson's form

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has expressed his disappointment at Glen Johnson's performances for the club this season and told the 26-year-old he is not playing like England's right-back.

Hodgson said: "He's the England right-back and, if he plays like that, one would expect him to come back in when he's fit. But then he'd have to play like the England right-back and up to now, to be quite frank, he's not performed - very often at least - to the level I'd expect of him.

"You would have to ask him 'do you think you're playing at top form and are you playing like the best right-back in the country for your club?' If he says yes, obviously we will have to agree to differ and if he says no, then you'd have to ask the question 'why not?'''
