If you're a Tottenham fan, you've probably told a lot of people how excited you are to see Gareth Bale back in north London.

If you support anyone else, you've probably been told by Tottenham fans how excited they are to see Gareth Bale back in north London.

That excitement is for moments like the Welshman's winner against Brighton on Sunday, where he headed Sergio Reguilon's header past Seagulls goalkeeper Robert Sanchez for the winner in Spurs' 2-1 victory.

Tottenham had been pegged back by Tariq Lamptey after Harry Kane opened the scoring with a penalty, but it was Bale, like a certain Norwich loving radio host and former television presenter, who had the last laugh.

Boy did it go down well on Twitter. The goal saw two old Real Madrid boys combine and, while it's the Kane-Son Heung-min partnership which has dominated the headlines during the early part of the season, it's a link Spurs fans are eager to see more of.

Tottenham weren't at their free flowing best on Sunday, often sitting off Brighton and negating their own attacking threat because of it, and a few fans certainly felt anxious while waiting for the final whistle, especially given the late sucker punches from Newcastle and West Ham earlier in the campaign.

But anyway, enough about that. Here's all the love Spurs players and fans dished out to Bale for his heroics.

The win is a massive one for Spurs, taking them up to second in the Premier League table. They face West Brom next in that competition, with a trip to Ludogorets Razgrad sandwiched in for Thursday, before a tough run of fixtures for the north London side.

Jose Mourinho's side will face Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Liverpool, Leicester and Wolves before the year is out.
