Tottenham Hotspur claim back-to-back wins as they secure a 4-0 victory over Sheff Utd
Gareth Bale scored a superb hat-trick as Tottenham Hotspur beat Sheffield United 4-0 to maintain their hopes of a top-four finish.
Spurs dominated the early proceedings and after Harry Kane had an effort cleared off the line, Bale put them ahead on 36 minutes.
An excellent pass from Serge Aurier split Sheff Utd’s defence and Bale timed his run well before flicking his effort beyond Aaron Ramsdale.
Bale latched on to a pass by Son Heung-min on 61 minutes to finish for his second goal of the night and 50th in the Premier League, before completing his hat-trick with a first-time drive eight minutes later.
With 13 minutes remaining, Son curled in a superb strike as Spurs moved up to fifth on 56 points, five behind fourth-placed Chelsea with four matches left to play.
Sheff Utd are bottom on 17 points.
