Krul hails Newcastle pals after victory over Liverpool

Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul hailed his teammates after victory over Liverpool.

Krul paid tribute to Mike Williamson and his stop-gap fellow centre-half James Perch, who admirably filled the void left by Fabricio Coloccini's absence.

He told Sky Sports 1: "(Williamson) and Perchy were outstanding, they blocked everything - I didn't have to make a proper save today."

And the Dutchman also saluted two-goal Papiss Cisse, adding: "He's a fantastic striker, a proper goalscorer. He's a typical number nine for Newcastle and I'm happy we signed a top-class player like him."
