Norwich v Tottenham reaction

Spurs consolidated third place in the table after Bale’s two goals

in the 2-0 win at Norwich kept them on the heels of the two

Manchester clubs in the table. Bale told Sky Sports 1: “We’ve

learnt a lot from last year being in the Champions League.” Bale

claimed he did not lose faith Spurs would win the game after

failing to take a number of chances in the first half. He added:

“As long as we are creating chances that’s the main thing. “We were

confident we would get one whoever it fell to and lucky enough it

was me.” Spurs manager Harry Redknapp said: “It was a good result.

When you are up there you cannot afford not to. You’ve got to keep

picking up results.” Redknapp brushed off talk of the title and

said he would wait until the end of the season to see if his side

could challenge joint leaders Manchester City and Manchester

United. He added on Sky Sports 1: “If there’s one game to go and

we’re sitting with a chance to win the league. “Man Utd and Man

City look so strong, I wouldn’t like to pick up a winner out of

those two. “We’d like to get back in the Champions League and that

won’t be easy.” Norwich manager Paul Lambert tipped Spurs as title

contenders. He said: “The bigger teams can really hurt you and

Spurs are definitely up there vying for the championship. “It’s

disappointing (to lose) but we gave it everything we had. They’ve

got quality all over the pitch.” Lambert added on Sky Sports 1:

“I’ve got to have a realism factor, where we came from and the team

we are up against.”
