Gareth Bale made the difference after the Magpies had successfully pegged the hosts back in an absorbing match at White Hart Lane, Yoan Gouffran the away side's scorer

Gareth Bale once again saved Tottenham with two brilliant goals in a nerve-wracking 2-1 victory over Newcastle at White Hart Lane to boost his side’s chances of a top four finish. (English Premier League, Gareth Bale, Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur)

Gareth Bale Started in style by depositing a well-placed free kick after just five minutes, though the wall might have put up more of a fight. Did not turn that into another barnstormer but, even below 100 per cent, embarrassed the Newcastle defence for his second, sprinting between the centre-backs and scuffing his shot through Krul's legs. Nearly had a third but for the Dutchman's fine saves and a snatched attempt at the death.
