Newcastle United midfielder Vurnon Anita is looking forward to their clash with Everton.

Anita will be reunited with friends against the Blues.

He told nufc.co.uk: "I know two players that play there. I played with Steven Pienaar at Ajax - he was there when I made my debut - and Johnny Heitinga, also from Ajax and the national team. They are very good players so I know they have a good team and a very strong team.

"It's a good opponent to play against and we're playing away so we must be prepared."
