Gareth Bale is relishing his new attacking role and hopes he can continue banging in the goals to help Tottenham sustain their title challenge.

Bale took his tally for the season to eight on Tuesday when he struck twice to give Tottenham a 2-0 win at Norwich, which lifted them within seven points of joint leaders Manchester City and Manchester United with a game in hand.

The Welshman was given a more central attacking role than his usual place on the left flank, and the player himself is enjoying his new role, saying: "The free role is helping me improve as a player as I'm not being marked out of the game."
