Nabil Bentaleb once again showed his parent club what they are missing by turning in a man of the match performance for Schalke against Mainz. As Tottenham faltered against a resolute Bournemouth side, Schalke continued their good form, beating Mainz 3-0 at home.
Bentaleb scored a brace, but the pick of his goals was his first. The Spurs lonee thumped in an emphatic half-volley from almost twenty yards away to put Schalke 1-0 up in the first half.
With the midfielder having scored three in his last two games, his return to form comes at the right time as Schalke have a tough match against Borussia Dortmund next weekend, in an intriguing Ruhr Derby clash.
