iverpool boss Roy Hodgson has expressed his disappointment at Glen Johnson's performances for the club this season.[LNB] Johnson's game-time in recent weeks has been limited - he has played just one of the Merseysiders' last seven matches due to injury - but the 26-year-old has failed to impress Hodgson when he has been on the pitch.[LNB]Quoted in several newspapers, 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.[LNB]"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.[LNB]"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?'[LNB]"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?"'[LNB]Johnson, signed from Portsmouth for a reported £18million in summer 2009, has been ruled out of this evening's Premier League game at Stoke with a groin problem.[LNB]
