Alan Shearer is back from his hernia operation and the former England skipper travelled back from Germany saying it was "a huge success", and is now hoping to feature for the Mags against Chelsea on November 19.

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

Defender Stephen Carr also had the operation recently and was back in training within 48 hours, so there is a genuine belief Shearer will be back for the game against the champions.
