Michael Owen has applauded Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale on Premier League Productions on Optus Sport, for the Welshman’s bravery as he scored his and Tottenham’s second goal during their 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.
Bale, 31, made it six goals in his last six appearances for Tottenham – as he netted a brace against Roy Hodgson’s Palace. The 83-time Wales international’s return to form has coincided with Tottenham’s run of winning games.
Jose Mourinho has watched his side pick up four consecutive victories, beating the likes of Wolfsberger, Fulham, Burnley and then Palace on Sunday. Bale got things underway early on, tapping a Harry Kane pass into the net.
Christian Benteke equalised, but Bale scored a brilliant header – getting across Cheikhou Kouyate to score. Harry Kane scored twice in the second-half to earn a 4-1 win, and Owen has heaped praise on Bale’s desire and bravery.
