Tim Krul and Moussa Sissoko react on Twitter to Newcastle-Villa draw

Tim Krul

The Newcastle duo took to social media after the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday evening.

Tim Krul was disappointed Newcastle United couldn't beat Aston Villa on Saturday evening but was optimistic about the prospect of returning from injury.

Indeed, after suffering a serious knee problem earlier this season, the Dutchman was ruled out for a number of months but returned to St James' Park without crutches for the first time this weekend.

Krul isn't necessarily guaranteed his starting spot when he's back, however, as Rob Elliot has been so solid for Newcastle in his absence.

Meanwhile, Moussa Sissoko took to Twitter lamenting the Magpies' lack of success and 'luck' during the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday. Fabricio Coloccini gave the home side the lead at St James' Park, before Jordan Ayew equalised for the visitors.

Newcastle sit 17th in the Premier League table following their Aston Villa stalemate but could drop back into the relegation zone if Swansea City pick up all three points against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

As for Newcastle's next game, the Magpies host Everton on Boxing Day. Villa, meanwhile, host West Ham a week after Swansea do.
