Pics of Gareth Bale as a monkey do the rounds on Arsenal sites ahead of the NLD

No doubting who the Tottenham danger man is at the North London derby tomorrow with Arsenal hoping to keep red hot Gareth Bale constrained after some epic performances of late.

For weeks now Arsenal fans have been calling Spurs “Bale United,” and despite Arsene Wenger refusing to change his game plan for the Welsh wizard it will be intriguing to see whether the Gunners can contain him.

As a result, Bale has been portrayed on a number of Arsenal sites as a monkey, not for the first time, in images that you may find comical or abusive, depending on your point of view.

The first picture below comes from the Arsenal reddit page and the second is from the Arseblog News site.
