Gareth Bale, who had recently lost weight in the Tottenham Hotspur, he retaliated with a hat trick against him Sheffield United (4-0) that keeps the ‘Spurs’ in the fight for the Champions League.
It is still very difficult for the London team to be next season in the top continental competition, since it is five points behind Chelsea, who is fourth, but with four days to go, he still has hope.
And it is thanks to a sensational performance by Bale this Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The Welshman, who only added one start in the last five games, achieved his first hat trick since December 2018, when he scored three goals with the Real Madrid in the semi-final of the Club World Cup against him Kashima antlers.
Bale opened the scoring by raising the ball above Aaron Ramsdale after a great pass from Serge aurier, made the second on the counter, in a heads-up with the Sheffield United goalkeeper, and completed the triplet with a low shot from outside the area before being substituted in the 75th minute.
With the Tottenham shirt he had not achieved a hat trick since December 2012, when he scored three goals in a 0-4 win against Aston Villa.
To complete the triumph, Heung-min Son, who had already assisted Bale in a goal, made it 4-0 with a great shot from outside the area.
With the three points, Tottenham clings to the fifth position, with 56 points, one above West Ham United and two ahead of Liverpool.
