Krul looks to van Gaal reunion

‘Nobody has hit better than me this week’ – Koepka on his ball-striking during third round

Netherlands international Krul will face former national team boss Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United, after being part of his squad to reach the semi-finals of last year’s World Cup in Brazil.

Krul said: “We had??a great 10 weeks,??memorable forever. I??will never forget those experiences.??I learnt a lot from van Gaal.

“I am looking forward to seeing him on Wednesday – and taking three points??from him. Wednesday is a massive game. They are always big, big games against??Manchester United here, and we are confident because they don’t like coming??here.”

Krul kept just a second Premier League clean sheet in seven??attempts since his return from injury in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Aston Villa at St James’ Park – Newcastle’s first home victory of 2015.
