Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew rates Tim Krul among the best goalkeepers in England after his performance in victory at Tottenham.

The Dutch shot-stopper was in inspired form at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Pardew told Sky Sports: "He's had a few good ones for us. I think he is the best Dutch goalie, for sure, and one of the best in this league.

"He's been so hurt with injuries, he's never really had a good run of late - in the last 18 months - but today he was back on form. He's been brilliant for us."
