Spurs need to win to keep their top four hopes alive.

Le Saux told the London Evening Standard: “Chelsea do have players who can excite just like Bale. They have incredible flair through midfield, in particular Juan Mata and Eden Hazard. With Spurs, Bale has had a sensational season, but with the amount of goals he’s scored and from outside the box, you can’t build a team on that and deliver it every game, every season.

“If I was at Spurs, I’d be looking at working out how to continue to improve in other areas of the pitch to offer him support and take the strain off him. From Chelsea’s point of view tomorrow, I think they have to play their own game. If you’re carrying a lot of threat and going forward, then there is not much Bale can do anyway.”
