Bale has made nine appearances in all competitions this season for Spurs. He has played three Premier League games, making one start against West Bromwich Albion. His goal against Brighton in November proved crucial in Spurs’ 2-1 win over the Seagulls (as per Transfermarkt). Mourinho has previously hailed Bale’s ‘incredible’ impact in the Europa League.
He had missed some games earlier in the season because of a knee injury. Some other Spurs fans also began talking about the update involving Bale.
Gotta start playing him in the league at some point too.

Spurs have a rather congested fixture list coming up in the Christmas and New Year period and that could prove to be a test for the club’s depth in the first team. Because of that, having Bale back fit might prove to be a timely boost for the Lilywhites. Considering the fact that Bale scored a vital winner against Brighton, he clearly still has the capability to become an important player for Mourinho’s men.
