Bale hails Parker influence in Tottenham derby triumph

Gareth Bale admits Scott Parker had a huge say in Tottenham's victory over Arsenal.

Bale hailed the former West Ham man's contribution, and that of Emmanuel Adebayor, who excelled despite abusive chanting aimed his way by some of the Arsenal support.

"Scott covers every blade of grass and does a very important job for us," Bale said.

"Adebayor has been running the channels, holding the ball up, scoring and winning headers.

"For us it's massive to beat the bigger teams, and especially our local rivals, which is important - not just for us but the fans."
