Bale admits Spurs locker room buzzing after Arsenal shock

Gareth Bale admits Tottenham's away dressing room was buzzing after their shock win at Arsenal.

It was their first win away to Arsenal since 1993 and players, management, staff and particularly the fans loved every second of it.

"Yes, there were some great celebrations at the final whistle," beamed Bale to the Spurs website.

"As they say, for the fans and everybody in North London it was the one game that everyone looks out for so to get the three points, especially at the Emirates, is something special.

"The gaffer said before the game that we have a great squad and a great team and we are here to match anybody.

"We obviously went out and didn't have the greatest of first halves but we showed what we were capable of in the second half.

"Jermain Defoe came on at half-time and we went for it. I think it gave us all encouragement. We went back out there, worked for each other and it paid off.

"Obviously it was ideal to get off to such a good start in the second half and we built on it.

"It was a great comeback and we got the three points in the local derby. It was a fantastic win."
