Tottenham Hotspur reached the 3rd spot as Gareth Bale scored and rescued them again against a spirited West Ham side. Two goals from the Welsh winger, one of them being an inhuman late winner. That goal just makes it too many super goals for Bale this season. Nobody knows, how Spurs would manage to keep him next season. Maybe they won’t but it would be a very big sale.
West Ham, earlier, were put into a winning position by couple of Liverpool rejects in Andy Carroll and Joe Cole. This after, Bale had provided the lead in this tackle friendly match. Sigurdsson scored the second goal and the equalizer and then Bale finished it off with a 35 yard howitzer.
West Ham United – Andy Carroll (25′ penalty), Joe Cole (58′)
Tottenham Hotspur – Gareth Bale (13′, 90′), Gylfi Sigurdsson (76′)
West Ham Starting Lineup – Jaaskelainen, Demel, Reid, Collins, O’Brien, O’Neil, Diame, Nolan, Jarvis, Carroll, Joe Cole
Tottenham Hotspur Starting Lineup – Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Caulker, Vertonghen, Parker, Dembele, Lennon, Bale, Holtby, Adebayor
