Newcastle fans single out Karl Darlow and Joelinton for praise following Tottenham draw

Newcastle United fans praised goalkeeper Karl Darlow and striker Joelinton for their performances against Tottenham Hotspur, after their club somehow scraped a 1-1 draw in north London.

Lucas Moura had opened the score in the first-half after good work from Harry Kane to make space and cross low to the back post.

Newcastle were very poor on the day and hardly threatened Hugo Lloris in the Spurs goal. In fact, they didn’t have a single shot on target before the injury-time penalty, which came about with VAR instructing the referee Peter Bankes to look at the pitchside monitor.

Spurs were better all over the park, and should have won by four or five if not for Darlow, who is currently replacing Martin Dubravka, who is nursing a heel injury.

Darlow was magnificent for Newcastle, denying Harry Kane on several occasions to keep his side in the game.
