Tottenham winger Gareth Bale hailed the form last season of teammate Kyle Walker.

Bale believes he has impressed in his first full season at White Hart Lane.

"He needed a run in the team, he got that and he's showed exactly what he can do this season," Bale told Spurs TV.

"He's played really well. He's set himself a benchmark this season and hopefully he can maintain it.

"Players know all about him now, they will be looking to stop those forward runs and he has to find a way around it - I'm sure he will."
