Tottenham’s matchwinner Gareth Bale refused to get too carried with his own performance after his late strike secured what could be a vital win for Tottenham against West Ham.

The Welsh winger struck twice, while Gylfi Sigurdsson also scored for Andre Villas-Boas’ side who came back from 2-1 down to take the three points.

Bale put Spurs ahead before an Andy Carroll penalty and a Joe Cole strike put the home side ahead, but Spurs ran out victors with Bale’s superb 90th.minute strike - his 15th Premier League goal of the season - securing a win which sees them jump above Chelsea and into third.

“It was a massive victory,” he said on Sky Sports 1.

“We knew after the (Chelsea) result yesterday that we had a massive chance to get third spot. We deserved the victory.

“We know what we are capable of. We have scored a lot of last minute winners.

“We are confident that if we keep battling to the end we will score.

“I’m just enjoying my football. The most important thing is the team playing well. It is not about me it’s about the team.”
