Spurs fans would have been crossing their fingers as Gareth Bale went off last night following his collision with Arsenal goalkeeper Szezcsny. With the PFA Player of the Year getting back towards his best form, he will be vital to the club as they aim for fourth place this season.
Harry Redknapp moved quickly to try and allay anyone’s fears: “It shouldn’t be too bad. He got a knock but he’ll get plenty of them over the next few years.”
So far that seems to be the only word on the substitution so we must hope that Gareth is fit and ready to take his place once again in Saturday’s line up.
