Bale Nets Brace Spurs Thrash Burnley

Gareth Bale bagged a brace as Tottenham Hotspur thrashed Burnley 4-0 in North London on Sunday afternoon.

The Welshman kept his spot in the side from Thursday's Europa League clash as he joined Harry Kane and Heung-min Son in the attack.

Bale got the festivities underway for the home side in the opening two minutes with a first-time finish from Son's cross.

The lead was doubled on 15 minutes when bagged his 14th league goal of the campaign with a close-range strike that deflected over Nick Pope.

Kane turned provider for the third goal 15 minutes later as his flick on played in Lucas Moura, who sent a powerful finish beyond Pope.

Burnley, meanwhile, struggled to carve out any serious openings at the other end as Spurs shot-stopper Hugo Lloris enjoyed a quiet opening 45 minutes.

However, Spurs continued their dominance in the second half as Bale completed his brace in the 55th minute with an impressive curling finish that left Pope with no chance.

That proved to be the final goal of the game as the LilyWhites did well to see off Burnely in the latter stages of the half to get back on the winning trail.

Leicester City 1-3 Arsenal

Arsenal recorded an impressive 3-1 come-from-behind victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.

Youri Tielemans opened the scoring for the Foxes after seven minutes when he burst down the right, cut inside and drilled low past Bernd Leno.

The Gunners took control from thereon, but had to wait until six minutes before the break to level matters when David Luiz headed in Willian’s free-kick.

Soon after, Lacazette converted a penalty to put Arsenal 2-1 up in first-half stoppage time after the Video Assistant Referee spotted Wilfred Ndidi handle Pepe’s shot.

Leicester were dealt a blow shortly after halftime when Harvey Barnes was carried off five minutes into the second half after appearing to injure his knee stretching for the ball.

Mikel Arteta's men went on to make it 3-1 after 52 minutes when Pepe tapped in from close range after being picked out by Willian, who registered his second assist.

The game went through a quiet spell for about half an hour with the Gunners comfortable in possession and able to nullify anything the Foxes threw at them.

With the visitors comfortably leading, Kieran Tierney flashed a volley narrowly wide after the ball was cleared to him on the edge of the box but three goals were enough to hand Arsenal the spoils.
