There’s some good news tonight that Tim Krul is ahead of schedule in recovering from his ankle ligament damage, and he may be able to return at Chelsea on January 10th – two weeks on Saturday.
Tim Krul – back in less than three weeks
When Tim was injured Rob Elliot came in but then he was injured and 3rd choice Jak Alnwick has come in for the last three and a half games, came in with 17 year-old Freddie Woodman on the bench.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew had previously said that the 26-year-old Dutch International would be available by mid January at the earliest.
However, this is what Alan Pardew said about Tim:
“There’s good news with him,” “The doc feels he’s a week ahead of schedule, and he might make the game against Chelsea.”
“That’s good for us because you always want to have your number one available.”
Rob Elliot will be out until the end of next month with a tear in his thigh muscle, so when Tim does come back then Jak Alnwick – who had a solid game against Sunderland on Sunday – will be on the bench until Rob returns.
That’s good news about Tim.
