Jason Cundy has given huge praise to Tottenham’s Gareth Bale for his display at the weekend.
Spurs suffered another loss at the weekend on their trip to London rivals West Ham, who beat them 2-1 due to a winning goal from Jesse Lingard.
It means they have now lost five of their last six Premier League games to slip down to ninth in the table and the pressure is certainly starting to build.
Cundy felt that Bale was one positive from the Spurs defeat on Sunday.
The Wales international was introduced as a half-time substitute and he made an impact with an assist for Lucas Moura’s goal, plus he saw an effort from the edge of the box just glance the crossbar.
“They didn’t start playing until the second half Spurs [against West Ham], they actually played very well. Bale did well, it’s the best game I’ve seen him play for Spurs,” Cundy told talkSPORT.
It remains to be seen if Bale can use his weekend display as a springboard in his season, but supporters and manager Jose Mourinho will certainly hope that’s the case.
His return on loan from Real Madrid has been an underwhelming one so far, as expectations have been on him to show the kind of form that saw him light up the Premier League in his youth.
The left-footer has shown some positive signs though in the past week and he needs to get a run of regular starts if he’s to really build some momentum.
He’s scored five goals and set up two assists in 18 appearances this season, but a stop-start campaign that will have made it difficult.
