The Manchester United defender Phil Jones has said that his teammates should be warned about the Welsh winger Gareth Bale. Bale is regarded as one of the best players in the world and his presence will certainly boost Tottenham in the match with the London club during the weekend according to Jones. Gareth Bale has already been responsible for helping Tottenham secure a victory over Manchester United earlier in the season. Bale scored in the 3-2 victory for Tottenham at Old Trafford, which came after more than two decades of suffering defeat at the stadium.
Tottenham are flying high in the league and currently competing with Chelsea and Arsenal for the fourth spot. United will be coming into the match after having seen their lead at the top of the table cut down to just four points. Tottenham have not suffered a defeat for almost 2 months now. Bale has made 19 appearances for the club this season and scored 9 goals. He recently said that he wants Tottenham to complete an unlikely double over Manchester United. Even though there are several good players within the Tottenham squad, Jones has said that his teammates should be especially wary of the threat from Gareth Bale.
“It’ll be a test for whoever comes up against Gareth Bale – he’s a great player. They have a lot of good individual players, but if we work collectively as a team hopefully we can stop him,” said Jones on the official site of Manchester United ahead of the match. “Another big game at the Lane tomorrow. We’ve not done the double over United for soooo long, so it’s time to change that,” said Bale on his Twitter account. United have not suffered a defeat in all competitions since the defeat against CFR Cluj early in December.
