In celebration of his incredible match-winning strike against West Ham United on Monday evening, GMF takes a look at Gareth Bale's top five goals of the season so far.

Gareth Bale vs West Ham (25/02/13)

This kind of stunning 30-yard strike is starting to become a trademark from the 23-year-old Welshman. 

As the game entered injury time, Bale receives the ball with his back to goal, takes a quick turn, surveys the area, takes one touch to the left and sends a rocket-of-a-shot straight into the top corner of the goal.

Another goal to save the Spurs from the clutches of defeat.

Gareth Bale (2) vs Lyon (14/02/13)

Two exceptional free-kicks that would make even David Beckham gasp in awe.

The first strike: a little over 30-yards out, Bale hits one with enough power and swerve for the ball to go over the wall and bounce right in front of the goalkeeper. Yet another example of incredible technique from the Welshman.

The second: around 25-yards out from goal. Bale again hits the ball with the perfect technique to initially send the goalkeeper the wrong way. And with the power behind the strike, there is no way the 'keeper can get back in time. Truly unstoppable.

Gareth Bale vs Norwich City (30/01/13)

With his lightning speed and his monster of a left foot, Bale has become one of the most dangerous players in the Premier League. And he shows how dangerous he can be with his goal against Norwich. 

Starting his run from inside his own half, Bale causes havoc amongst the Canaries’ defence. He races past one defender and gets off a stellar shot into the opposite corner between two defenders.

Gareth Bale vs West Brom (02/02/13)

This kind of goal can only be described as world class. 

Here we see Bale receive the ball from the right-hand side before taking a touch across the face of goal, smashing the ball into the left side of the goal. 

This second-half strike ended up being the decider in a 1-0 Spurs victory over West Brom. Once again Bale came to the rescue of the north London team.
