Tim Krul: "I am surprised at Newcastle's lack of silverware in recent years.
"Yes, because it's got all the attributes - the stadium, the fans...
"If you see the clubs who have won prizes, I can't see why we can't get to the FA Cup final or push on as a top-six team.
"I have said it for years now, that Newcastle has got everything to be one of the top teams, and we are showing that this season.
"Brighton will be raring to go - for them, it's a massive game. Newcastle coming to their stadium is huge.
"But we will be out there to prove ourselves again and get back to winning ways.
"We have seen some clips of them and the stadium, the pitch, the facilities are there, there are no complaints there, there are no excuses, so we will be ready."
