Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul is wary of facing Everton's free-kick specialist Leighton Baines tomorrow night.

Krul was on the receiving end last season when set-piece specialist Baines beat him with a 30-yard thunderbolt in Everton’s 2-1 win.

He said: “I saw his goals and he scored a fantastic free-kick against me last season from 30 yards.

“I owe him one and I hope he doesn’t score against me this time. He’s one of the best free-kick takers in the league.

“There’s not really anything you can do in training to prepare. I just hope he doesn’t hit one as well as he did last season. I’ve had Hatem firing a few free-kicks at me to help.’’
