Gareth Bale was only interested in the three points after scoring the goals that beat Norwich City on Tuesday night.

It was another wonderful performance both from the team and the Welsh wizard as we secured a 2-0 win against the gutsy Canaries at Carrow Road.

Gareth had the best chances of a goalless first half and our pressure eventually told 10 minutes into the second half when the winger struck from 12 yards.

Victory was rubber-stamped in style 12 minutes later when Gareth burst through the middle from halfway into the penalty area before lifting the ball calmly over John Ruddy.

"I just saw the gap and went for it," reflected Gareth on that fine effort. "It was great to get on the scoresheet and more importantly, to get the three points."

Gareth said the team spoke beforehand about the chance to consolidate our third place in the Premier League with Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all drawing.

Victory saw us go four points clear of Chelsea and five ahead of Arsenal, with a game still in hand.

"We all knew coming into the game that the teams around us had dropped points and it was a chance for us to take advantage," he said.

"We spoke about it before the game. The results went for us and we knew it was important to go out there and get the three points to put more pressure on the teams around us and try and cement our place in the top four.

"We played some great football, were patient, created a lot of chances and didn’t let them create too much. It was a great team display and luckily I got the two goals."
