It seems the only thing standing between Tottenham Hotspur and their perennial end of season collapse is one MR Gareth Bale. Having the PFA Player of the Year, PFA Young Player of the Year and Football Writers PLayer of the Year awards in his back-pocket don’t seem to have slowed him down none.
As Spurs spluttered towards a disappointing draw with Southampton at White Hart Lane yesterday, Bale cracked in this belter to secure the three points. This win was just the London’s club’s third win in their last ten games all across all competitions. On current form they may need a few more solo efforts like this one before the season is over if they want to squeeze in to the Champions League places.
If they don’t then this could be the last season we enjoy watching Bale in the Premier League.
