Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul says they mustn't dwell on their thrashing at Tottenham.

United have had a full week to reflect on the calamitous performance.

But Krul said: “We’ve got two home games and they are massive.

“Someone like Tottenham away is not a fixture you have to win – Wolves and Sunderland at home are very different. They are the ones, and if we win those then we are back up where we have been all season.

“You can’t look too far ahead, but if we can win the next two then we are massively on target for a top-ten finish.

“We’ve had a little hiccup and that is a shame, but there are some massive games coming up and we need to get two good results.”
