Tim Krul

10-An absolutely outstanding performance from the Dutch stopper, arguably the best of any goalkeeper in the Premier League season. Made 14 saves in total and was the hero on the day.

Mathieu Debuchy

7-Going from strength to strength in the Premier League this season, offered a great threat going forward and covered well to make some crucial clearances.

Mike Williamson

7-Another solid display. Kept Fabricio Coloccini on the bench and justified his selection as he kept Roberto Soldado quiet.

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa

7-Played a massive part in the victory with a hugely important clearance off the line.

Davide Santon

7-Didn’t offer much going forward, but nullified the threat of a very dangerous Andros Townsend.

Cheick Tiote (captain)

6-Wasn’t overly impressive, nevertheless it was a solid performance from the captain.

Yohan Cabaye

7-Was key when Newcastle did have possession and showed a terrific range of passing.

Moussa Sissoko

7-Strong, powerful and direct down the right hand side and gave Jan Vertonghen problems at times.

Yoan Gouffran (Off 85)

8-Worked tirelessly on the left-hand side with Davide Santon to thwart the lively Andros Townsend and Kyle Walker. Provided the assist for the only goal of the game with a beautifully weighted through ball.

Loic Remy (Off 75)

7-Another impressive display from the on loan striker and another goal in black and white to continue his impressive start on Tyneside. Always a threat on the shoulder of the last defender.

Shola Ameobi (Off 60)

6-Held the ball up well at times, but never looked a threat to Tottenham’s backline and was replaced on the hour.



 Vurnon Anita (On 60)

6-Came on and solidified Newcastle’s midfield.

Papiss Cisse (On 75)

6-Had a difficult chance to end his goal drought and caught the ball sweetly on the volley, but his effort was high and wide.

Gabriel Obertan (On 85)

5-Didn’t have enough time to make an impact.
