Gareth Bale set to return for Tottenham Hotspur against West Ham United
The Welshman returned to Spurs on loan from Real Madrid this summer. Having arrived nursing a knee injury, he has had to bide his time to don the Spurs jersey once again.
Having returned to training earlier this week, the time is nearing to see him once again rip it up in a Spurs jersey.
Bale spent six years at Tottenham before moving to Real Madrid in 2013. During that time, he made 203 appearances, scoring 56 goals and assisting 58 more.
A two-time PFA Player of the Year winner, the 31-year-old was unplayable at his best. While he may have toned down in recent years, he remains a key threat who can add much to the Spurs frontline.
Bale wasn’t included in the Wales squad for the current international break. The winger used the opportunity to stay in North London and work on his fitness.
A fine addition
Bale hasn’t played club football since June after being frozen out at Real Madrid by Zinedine Zidane. Unlike in Spain, he is held in high regard at Spurs even today.
He is expected to be used on the right-wing by Jose Mourinho once he is able to play. While he may not be ready to start yet, the prospect of him coming off the bench against the Hammers looks probable. (h/t The Express)
The Spurs attack has looked in fine form this season. In fact, we have scored 13 goals in our last two games including six away at Old Trafford. The prospect of adding Bale to this prolific frontline is a truly exhilarating thought.
