Krul made a season-high 14 saves to deny us at the Lane with top-drawer saves from Roberto Soldado, Paulinho, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Younes Kaboul.
When he was beaten, Jan Vertonghen’s header came back off the crossbar as we racked up 31 attempts at goal.
However, Loic Remy struck the only goal of the game in the first half as Newcastle ran out 1-0 winners.
“Krul was outstanding,” said Brad, who made his 50th Premier League appearance for us on Sunday. “In the second half it was chance after chance after chance.
“You see the quality in training on a daily basis, there is no lack of confidence and it will come good because we have so many quality players.”
