Gareth Bale's Individual Highlights Against Royal Antwerp Proves He's Struggling For Form

Gareth Bale's individual highlights against Royal Antwerp proves he's clearly not match fit as he struggles to find form following his move from Real Madrid.

Bale started up front on Thursday as Tottenham suffered a 1-0 defeat on the road in the Europa League.

The 31-year-old's numbers from the European clash make for damning reading. He had two shots - neither on target.

And he completed just one duel and failed to register a key pass.

Of course, Bale is still finding his feet following a period of inactivity at Real.

But early signs do not look good as BT Sport pundit Martin Keown questioned whether he'd get called out for his worrying form.

"Gareth Bale didn't do anything tonight. Nothing at all," he said. "But I'm not sure we're going to hear that.

"You might hear a little go at Dele Alli, or see it on Amazon, but we're not going to hear particularly about Gareth Bale.

"I think it should be equal for every single player and really Gareth Bale could have come off at half-time, for the performance we saw in the first half.

"But the manager wants a pathway for him. Maybe he doesn't want one for Dele Alli.

"But I think there should be a pathway for every player."

Spurs return to action on Sunday when they resume their Premier League campaign against Brighton.
