John Carver has held his pre-Chelsea press conference on Thursday afternoon and confirmed that Tim Krul will be OK for Saturday if he comes through a behind closed doors friendly this afternoon against Celtic.

The caretaker boss also claims United face one the best teams and manager in the world – well with nine Premier league wins out of nine at Stamford Bridge, it certainly suggest United are up against it when they face the top of the table team.

john carverCarver reckons that he has had great ‘feedback’ from the players, well I hope for his sake that this ‘feedback’ was a bit different to what I’ve heard from supporters in recent days…

Newcastle United have released these few snippets from the John Carver press conference;

“We have got a good record against Chelsea and we have to use that to our advantage this weekend.”

“We’re going up against one of the best sides and best manager in Europe, if not the world.”

Feedback welcome…

“The players have been fantastic with me. The feedback (from the players) has been excellent so far and I’m happy with that.

Krul should be ok;

“Tim Krul is taking part in a behind closed doors game v Celtic – if he comes through that he will be available for the weekend.”
