Defender Glen Johnson is set to make his return in Liverpool's Europa League Group K tie at home to Napoli after missing the last four matches with a thigh problem.Manager Roy Hodgson has promised to field a strong side - although he refused to say whether Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres would play - having earned a creditable goalless draw in Italy a fortnight ago.However, he is definitely missing Dirk Kuyt (ankle), Fabio Aurelio (groin) and Joe Cole (hamstring), while Daniel Agger has travelled to London to see a specialist about his calf injury.Ryan Babel (rib) has trained but second-choice goalkeeper Brad Jones is absent.
