Gareth Bale thinks Tuesday’s match at Norwich will be an end-to-end clash against a team that fears no-one.

Gareth Bale thinks Tuesday’s match at Norwich will be an end-to-end clash against a team that fears no-one.

The Canaries have made a fine start to their first campaign in the Premier League since 2004-05.

Paul Lambert’s men are ninth in the table – highest of the three promoted clubs – and have lost only two of their eight home matches so far.

We travel to Norfolk on a run of 11 wins, two draws and just one defeat in our last 14 matches in the Premier League, sitting third on Christmas Day, with a game still in hand.

“They go all-out attack, they are not scared of any team and they go for it,” said Gareth.

“We’ll be wary of that and we’re good at going forward as well, so it could be an end-to-end game.

“We’ll look to stamp our authority on the game. We’re looking to take three points and kick-on into the New Year.”

Gareth agreed with the general consensus that a draw was fair last time out against Chelsea.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game,” he added. “We were ready, prepared and it was one of those matches, quite even, and at the end, a draw was probably fair. We all move on to the next game.”
