Johnson faces three-month lay-off
Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Manchester City winger Adam Johnson will be ruled out for three months with an ankle injury.
Johnson suffered ligament damage in a freak incident during training on Thursday and scans have confirmed Mancini's worst fears.
"We have lost Adam Johnson for three months," said Mancini. "This will be a very big problem because he is an important player. The injury is like the one Aleksandar Kolarov had earlier this season. We do not have another player like Adam."
