Emil Krafth injury history and updates

Emil Krafth cruciate ligament rupture, August 2022

Definitely his most significant injury blow since he first signed for Newcastle United.

At the beginning of the 2022/23 season, Newcastle defender Emil Krafth suffered from a severe rupture of his cruciate ligament. At the time, it was essentially accepted that he would be ruled out for a long time.

As developments emerged with the medical team, it was revealed that he’d be unlikely to feature for the rest of the season, despite the season only getting underway.

Now that we are into the following 2023/24 season, Krafth is still yet to return to training for Newcastle United.

As per Premier Injuries, Emil Krafth is completely ruled out, however his potential return date shows as the 21st of October, 2023. This means he COULD play against Crystal Palace after the October international break. Of course, we will update if he’s fit in time.

Emil Krafth ankle injury, July 2020

Krafth played the entire match against Brighton and Hove Albion at the end of the 2019/20 season (which ended late due to COVID-19). However, it was then revealed that he would miss the final game of the season against Liverpool due to an ankle injury he picked up. He made the bench in the first game of the following season, though, so not a serious injury.
