Norwich City 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham kept up their Barclays Premier League title challenge by beating Norwich at Carrow Road to move seven points behind leaders Manchester City.

Gareth Bale went close three times in an entertaining but goalless first half, before the Welsh winger collected an Emmanuel Adebayor pass and slotted past John Ruddy 10 minutes after the break.

Bale wrapped up the points with a stunning second, racing on to Luka Modric's pass on halfway and running through to fire past Ruddy as Harry Redknapp's team won their 12th match of the season.
