Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul has calmed fears that he could miss the majority of the season with a knee injury. The Dutchman was in pain after sustaining a knee problem during the morale-sapping midweek 3-0 home defeat at the hands of a clinical Everton side at St James’s Park. He has been one of the few shining lights in an otherwise frustrating campaign for the Magpies and supporters were anxiously awaiting a progress report on his condition. However, Newcastle hope to have him back within a month and the towering 25-year-old has vowed to be between the posts for the North-East outfit soon. He also revealed that he has been using an ice machine and ice bath to help the recovery process. He said on Twitter: “Had a heavy knock on my knee in the game on Wednesday night. Won’t be out for to long.“Ice machine/ice bath all day now to be back ASAP. #nufc”Watch Arsenal v Man City Saturday or Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday. 24 hour Sky Sports day pass for only 9.99.
