Tottenham 0-1 Newcastle: Krul stars as Magpies hold Spurs at bay

White Hart Lane 4

Newcastle United defeated Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 this afternoon.

Newcastle United pulled off an impressive 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane this afternoon, courtesy of a goal from Loic Remy and some fine goalkeeping from Tim Krul.

Remy put the Magpies ahead after just 13 minutes, to continue his and his side's impressive recent form, slotting home after a pass from Yoan Gouffran.

With 65% of the possession, and a remarkable 31 shots with 14 on target, Tottenham tried all they could to find an equaliser.  But time and again they were thwarted by Krul, 

The result means Spurs missed out on the chance to climb back to third in the Premier League table.  Instead they remain sixth, while Alan Pardew's men move up to ninth.
