Newcastle United star recovers after Tuesday surgery – Photo
DeAndre Yedlin started 28 of the opening 33 Premier League matches of the season.
However, after conceding the penalty that handed a 1-0 win to Crystal Palace, he was replaced by Javier Manquillo.
On the bench against Leicester, Southampton and Brighton, the defender then missed Liverpool altogether.

Now the player has given his own update.
DeAndre Yedlin using his Instagram account to reveal that he has now had surgery.
The USMNT international posting a photograph from his hospital bed along with the caption: ‘Surgery complete – now time to recover.’
Yedlin was due to be involved with his country this summer.
They have friendlies against Jamaica and Venezuela in early June, before the CONCACAF Gold Cup kicks off on 15 June.
Group games on 19 June (Guyana), 23 June (Trinidad and Tobago) and 27 June (Panama). With then more games if they progress, culminating with a potential final on 7 July.
Obviously doubtful now if DeAndre Yedlin will have anything more than a long rest this summer.
