Best NUFC Goalkeeping Display In Living Memory!
Alan Pardew heaped praise on goalkeeper Tim Krul for an inspired performance.
25-year-old Krul produced one of the Premier League's best-ever goalkeeping performances, with his 14 saves the most seen in a single top-flight match since the 2006-07 season.
Alan Pardew: "It was one of the best goalkeeping performance I have seen. Yeah, it was certainly one of them. Wow. I think he is the best goalie in Holland and I think he proved that today.
"His performance level has not needed to be high recently as we have not come under that sort of pressure too often, but we did today.
"Certainly in the second half Tottenham really turned up the heat and he answered almost everything. It was an unbelievable performance.
"We did similar to what we did when we won against Chelsea.
"I thought Remy had a great chance before he scored and I was a little bit surprised he did not take that because he really is in great form.
"But the second one he made no mistake with and it gave us a platform for the win.
"He has got a silkiness to the way he moves and a nice kind of gait, the way he runs and everything. He really is a classy-looking performer, which is great if you back it up with goals.
"It kind of elevates him and he stands out, but I thought Shola Ameobi was terrific in the 60 minutes he played. He was as important as Loic, I thought."
