Gareth Bale showed why he should be starting Premier League games, as he scored twice and got an assist as Spurs dominated Burnley.

There's been lots of talk about Bale's form since he returned to Spurs, after seven years away, when he rejoined the north London club on loan from Real Madrid.

The forward had only started two league games in the months since moving back to England but a goal in each leg of the Europa League in the past 10 days and his performance off the bench against West Ham last week had led to calls for him to start.

Jose Mourinho decided Sunday at home against Burnley was the right time and the Welshman opened the scoring after just two minutes, he then set up Harry Kane to make it 2-0 on 15 minutes.

After Lucas Moura had made it 3-0 before the break, Bale added his second just after half-time, making it 4-0 on 55 minutes with a cracking finish after a great counter attack, before being subbed off 15 minutes later.

Spurs fans had been wanting Mourinho to play a more attacking side and on Sunday he started with Kane, Bale, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.

Even Dele Alli got on the pitch in the second half, and the white half of London will be very happy with everything from Sunday's game.
