‘Bale is back’: Tottenham fans react to Welshman’s starring display vs Burnley

Tottenham vs Burnley

Tottenham played host to Burnley on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs, a couple of wins over Wolfsberger in Europe aside, headed into the tie in pretty dire form.

In their last six league outings before Sunday, for example, Jose Mourinho’s side had notched just one win, which came against a very poor West Brom side.

Burnley, on the other hand, had actually not lost in their last four, though three of those games did end as draws.

So, whilst Spurs were viewed as favourites heading into the clash, their fans were no doubt concerned regarding the possibility of suffering another embarrassing league defeat.

However, in the end, that is far from what played out at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It took Gareth Bale less than two minutes to open the scoring against the Clarets.

The Welshman then set up Harry Kane 15 minutes in to double the north Londoners’ advantage:

And just after the half-hour-mark, Jose Mourinho’s men killed the game off altogether, when Kane nodded Sergio Reguilon’s cross into the path of Lucas Moura, who made it 3-0.

The Lilywhites were not done there, though, adding a 4th in the second-half. Bale was once again central, bending a sumptuous effort past Nick Pope, who could do nothing but watch the ball glide past him.

Bale is back?

Following Spurs’ victory, much of the chatter has, unsurprisingly, surrounded Gareth Bale.

The Welshman’s return to north London had been pretty underwhelming to date.

However, recent games have seen Bale improve a great deal, providing goal contributions in all of Spurs’ last three outings before Sunday.

And, against Burnley, Bale, who scored the opener, the 4th and set up the 2nd, bested his goal and assist tally from his previous eight league appearances.

This, in turn, has since prompted the Tottenham faithful to take to social media, to praise the Real Madrid man:
