AM: Gareth Bale

As the most-expensive player in the history of football, there was an incredible amount of pressure on Bale to perform instantly upon his arrival at Real Madrid.

That wasn't entirely possible, however, with the Welsh maestro obviously needing time to adapt having not had much of a pre-season with Tottenham and also evidently struggling with various injury niggles.

Once he managed to get back to full fitness, however, Bale has been very impressive indeed for Real.

While the fans understandably will still expect more of him, 10 goals and nine assists in 17 La Liga appearances is nothing to be sniffed at.
