Shearer eyeing up swift recovery
Newcastle captain Alan Shearer
Newcastle's Alan Shearer was back at the training ground on Wednesday, just 24 hours after having hernia surgery.

The 35-year-old travelled to Germany for the operation and hopes to be fit to face Chelsea on 19 November.

He will start light training and expects to be running within days, following the example of Stephen Carr, who had a similar injury.

Carr had an operation last Thursday, was running within 48 hours and will quickly return to full training.

Newcastle manager Graeme Souness said: "There's a lady who operates and she must do something different because she gets them back very quickly."

Souness's side have won their last three Premiership games after a disappointing start to the season.
