There was much talk ahead of Tottenham’s game with Wigan over just who would lead the line for Spurs on Saturday, with manager Adrea Villas Boas admitting prior to the game he had a tough decision to make.
In the end the former Chelsea boss went with Jermain Defoe but unfortunately for those who backed Defoe he failed to produce against a tough Latics defence.
Gareth Bale was handed a start on the right as apposed to his more central midfield role but once again it didn’t seem to matter where Bale played as it took nine minutes to continue his remarkable season by firing home the opener at the DW.
At this point in the season Bale’s potential is obvious to all and having picked up both the PFA Player Of The Year and Young Player Of The Year his already high confidence looks set to skyrocket.
Tottenham will have been disappointed not to pick up all three points but in truth they were probably lucky to collect a point as they came from behind to draw 2-2 with battling Wigan.
Despite the dropped points on Saturday Tottenham are still in the mix for a champions league place and with games to come against Southampton, Chelsea, Stoke and Sunderland I think we can expect more from Bale and Tottenham.
And of course with Tottenham playing twice in round 37 it seems foolish not to have Bale in your side for the remainder of the season.
