Bale has never scored against Everton â€“ a statistic Gibson credits largely to the performances of Seamus Coleman in recent meetings.
â€śI think he [Bale] has been unbelievable,â€ť Gibson told evertontv. â€śHeâ€™s won games for Spurs on his own.
â€śItâ€™s good for English football and itâ€™s good for Spurs but hopefully he is not good on Sunday against us. I think he is up there with the best in Europe at the minute.
â€śSeamus has dealt with him quite well the last two times he has played against him.
â€śHeâ€™s a great player and I donâ€™t think there is one particular way of stopping him. Weâ€™re good as a team defensively and we work hard for each other, so hopefully we will be alright.â€ť
