Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul is confident of a successful campaign next season.

He thinks the lack of European football this year will be key.

"Being able to train for a full week will make a big difference," the goalkeeper said.

"We won't have any Europa League games next season and that does have an impact on the training as well as the freshness of the squad.

"Next season we'll be right up there, I have no doubt about that."
