Another week, another Bale golazo: Tottenham close the gap on Chelsea after WBA win

West Brom 0 – Tottenham 1 (Premier League, February 3, 2013) (Alternative highlights & high quality highlights, MOTD highlights.) Clint Dempsey flashed a header just wide in the 7th minute. Gareth Bale almost found the net when a brilliant solo run ended with a shot narrowly arrowing over the bar. The Baggies were reduced to ten men when Goran Popov was sent off for spitting towards Kyle Walker.  Spurs took the lead in the 67th minute when Gareth Bale unleashed a trademark left-foot rocket to break the deadlock.
