Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul and his manager Alan Pardew have completed a double scoop for their club by winning the Barclays monthly awards for November.
Krul wins the award for a series of fine performances between the posts for Newcastle, whom he helped complete four successive victories, including two clean sheets against Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, during that winning sequence.
Krul, who made a record 14 saves in the 1-0 victory against Spurs on 10 November, becomes only the eighth goalkeeper to win the award, and the first since February 2010.

Pardew, who guided his side to seventh place in the Barclays Premier League table last month, collects the award for the second time in his career, having won the accolade while at the helm of West Ham United in February 2006.
The 52-year-old, who was voted LMA Manager of the Season in 2011/12, is the first Newcastle manager to receive the monthly honour since Sir Bobby Robson was recognised in October 2003.
Congrats to them!
