// A bit of a hack but it works// The article snippet is wrapped onto a second line, even when #article-sub is emptyif( $("div#article-sub").children().length == 0 ) {$("div#article-sub").remove();} Glen Johnson and Fabio Aurelio will both miss Liverpool's vital UEFA Champions League clash with Lyon after failing to travel with the squad to France.[LNB] The defensive duo were left behind as Rafa Benitez's injury-hit squad travelled out from Liverpool on Tuesday.[LNB]Johnson and Aurelio have failed to shake off calf problems and have been left behind on Merseyside to receive further treatment.[LNB]As a result of their injury problems Liverpool have been given permission by Uefa to bring teenage defender Daniel Ayala into their squad from their B list of players registered for the group matches.[LNB]The absence of Johnson leaves Benitez with a major headache over who to play at right-back as Philipp Degen is not registered for the Champions League.[LNB]It means Jamie Carragher could be switched to right-back or youngster Stephen Darby could be drafted in.[LNB]Better news for Benitez is that Alberto Aquilani, Daniel Agger and David Ngog have all made the trip after missing last weekend's defeat by Fulham.[LNB]
