Bale bags brace as Spurs move into third

Gareth Bale scored yet another brilliant last-gasp winner to move Tottenham up to third after a cracking London derby in which they edged West Ham 3-2 at Upton Park.
Jussi Jaaskelainen rolled back the years to keep the Hammers in the game for most of the clash, but there was nothing the 37-year-old could do to stop Bale's blistering 25-yard shot flying in to the top corner with just 10 seconds remaining.
Bale put Tottenham ahead in the first half, but Andy Carroll scored a penalty after being brought down in the box by former Hammers midfielder Scott Parker, who was booed throughout. Joe Cole thought he had grabbed the Hammers a morale-boosting win, but substitute Gylfi Sigurdsson equalised and Bale provided the killer blow in the final minute.
