Gareth Bale says Tottenham's upturn in results is down to the August arrival of Scott Parker.

Bale has highlighted the impact Parker has had on the team, saying that he allows the flair players to express themselves.

"It's great for the likes of me, Rafael Van Der Vaart, Luka Modric, Emmanuel Adebayor and Aaron Lennon," Bale said.

"Scott does a massive job for us, he has a huge role in the team and he does it amazingly.

"Since he has been at the club he has been phenomenal and we hope he continues to do that so that we can express ourselves."
