London: France forward Loic Remy scored his seventh goal in his last seven Premier League games to earn resurgent Newcastle a 1-0 win at Tottenham and a second straight victory over a top-four contender.
But the visitors needed a string of stunning saves by goalkeeper Tim Krul, especially a one-handed stop from Gylfi Sigurdsson's deflected free kick, in the second half to secure the win at White Hart Lane.
Six days after clinching Newcastle's 2-0 win over Chelsea, Remy ran onto Yoan Gouffran's through-ball, rounded goalkeeper Brad Friedel and slotted home for the 13th-minute winner.
Friedel started for Spurs after Hugo Lloris was not included in the squad to give the France international more rest after being knocked unconscious against Everton last weekend. The victory lifted Newcastle into the top half.
