Bale's Hat-Trick Keeps Spurs In UCL Hunt

Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 Sheffield United

Gareth Bale netted a scintillating hat-trick as Tottenham Hotspur completed a 4-0 rout of relegated Sheffield United at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.

Tottenham interim manager Ryan Mason made two changes from their defeat to Man City last weekend, with Delle Alli and Gareth Bale coming into the side in place of Harry Winks and Lucas Moura. Sheffield acting boss Paul Heckingbottom made one change to his Sheffield United side as Chris Basham replaced Kean Bryan.

Spurs were all over United in the opening exchanges with Son Heung Min being denied by a great save from Aaron Ramsdale before Harry Kane saw his effort cleared off the line.

Mason's side went in front through Bale in the 36th minute after he latched onto Aurier's ball over the top and dinked the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.

Spurs then had a goal disallowed before Bale grabbed his second in the 64th minute after receiving the ball from Son and thumping the ball into the top-right corner.

And the Welsh winger's hat-trick was complete just five minutes later when this time he beat Ramsdale in the bottom right corner after being fed by Aurier, who grabbed his second assist to bounce back from his poor display against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final.

Son added a goal to his assist to put the icing on the cake for Ryan Mason's side when he cut inside George Baldock and curled the ball into the far corner leaving Ramsdale little to no chance with Spurs moving back up into fifth position with the win.

Newcastle United 0-2 Arsenal

Arsenal kept their slim top six aspirations alive with a 2-0 victory away to Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners got off to the perfect start as Mohamed Elneny opened the scoring with a powerful finish into the bottom corner after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's fluffed the chance from Hector Bellerin's cross.

Newcastle nearly levelled maters on 18 minutes through Allan Saint-Maximin, who skipped past one player before seeing his effort tipped over the bar by Matt Ryan.

It was end-to-end affair in the first half, with Elneny almost bagging a second goal at the half-an-hour mark as his strike was cleared off the line by Miguel Almiron.

Despite the flurry of chances at both ends, the first half was only able to produce one goal in favour of the away side.

Mikel Arteta was forced into a change eight minutes into the second half as David Luiz was forced off with an injury and replaced by Callum Chambers.

The next goal would arrived on 66 minutes as Aubameyang got his name on the scoresheet with first-time finish at the far post from Gabriel Martinelli's cross.

That proved to be Aubameyang's final major involvement, as he made way for Pepe in the final 12 minutes with the result wrapped up.

The Magpies finished the game with 10 men after Fabian Schar was shown a straight red card in the latter stages for dangerous challenge on Martinelli.
