Bale: Spurs won't panic

Published Add your comment

Gareth Bale is not concerned by the poor form that has seen Tottenham lose three Premier League games on the bounce.

After an embarrassing 5-2 defeat against north London rivals Arsenal, Harry Redknapp's men have fallen to Manchester United and most recently Everton, but Bale says that there is nothing to worry about.

"We're third-top, not third-bottom, and the manager has full confidence in us," he told Sky Sports. "He's not slaughtering us in the dressing room after we've lost to Manchester United or Everton.

"These have been high-profile matches against teams up there, so people will make a lot of the losses, but it won't take us a lot to turn it around. Just a bit of luck."

Everton and Stoke City remain the only two teams outside of the top four to have beaten Spurs so far this season, and the Potters will try and make it a double on Wednesday night at White Hart Lane.

A disappointing three weeks has seen the Lillywhites go from outsiders for the title to just a point ahead of fourth place Arsenal.

The Welshman said: "Even with our recent results this is still an exciting time and, if we keep building on what we have, who knows what we could achieve in the future?

"We're a young team who are still growing up together, progressing together."

Champions League football is the number one target for Redknapp who may be England manager by the end of the season.

If Spurs are to qualify for Europe's top tier competition, it will likely be at the expense of either Arsenal or Chelsea - the latter of which Tottenham play on Saturday.

"People have pointed out what could happen if we don't get back into the Champions League, but look what might happen if we do," Bale concluded.

"We don't want to be losing players like Luka (Modric) in the summer, but if we get the Champions League football there'll be no problem keeping the squad together.

"I have no doubt about that. We know what's at stake, but there's no panic."
