London - Gareth Bale was involved in all three goals on Wednesday as Tottenham beat
Liverpool 2-1 to end the visitors' eight-match Premier League unbeaten
The Spurs winger eluded several defenders after collecting the ball in
his own half before crossing inside the box for Aaron Lennon to tap in
at the far post in the seventh minute at White Hart Lane.
Bale's swerving free kick then gave Spurs a 2-0 lead by the 16th.
It took a freakish goal to get Liverpool back in the match. Steven
Gerrard headed on a corner to Lennon on a post, but his attempted
clearance smashed Bale in the face and the ball ricocheted into the net
in the 72nd.
Spurs is only five points out of the Champions League spots. Liverpool stay in 11th place.
