Newcastle achieved a superb 1-0 win against Tottenham at White Hart Lane in November 2013, and it saw Tim Krul put in one of the greatest goalkeeping performances in recent memory.

When Loic Remy latched onto a through-ball from Yoan Gouffran to put the Magpies ahead in the 14th minute, it sparked an onslaught from the home side, and seemed impossible that Newcastle would be able to hang on to their lead for the whole game.

Step up Tim Krul, who went on to make multiple world class saves to keep the home side at bay, and virtually single-handedly secure the win for Newcastle.

It was a display that would earn the Dutch stopper a 10 out of 10 rating, and is one that any Toon fan who witnessed it would remember for many years after.

He made an unbelievable 14 saves, including a sensational second half triple stop to preserve their lead. The ball did manage to get past him on one occasion with Jan Vertonghen heading against the crossbar.

But it would have been unjust if Krul’s heroics did not result in a win, and he kept shots out with both his arms and feet as Spurs just could not find a way through.

 

Tim Krul has always received a warm welcome from Newcastle fans

It was one of those performances all young goalkeepers dream of, and rarely manage to achieve.

It led manager Alan Pardew to proclaim Krul’s “terrific” display had proved he was the best Dutch goalkeeper at the time, and one of the best in the Premier League.

There will certainly not be many Newcastle fans who would argue with that, and is one of the reasons Krul is always afforded a very warm welcome from fans whenever he has lined up against them since his departure.
