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 run.

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.
