Gareth Bale proved is ready to bounce fully back in Spurs 4-1 defeat of Wycombe on Tuesday night.
Bale on a season long loan to Spurs from Real Madrid has been having it a bit slow with Tottenham coach insisting that the Wales international will have to compete for minutes on the pitch.
Bale who has scored over 80 goals for Real Madrid in 171 appearances since 2013 proved himself a delight in Tuesday’s FA cup tie, rising to the occasion when it mattered most.
And everything was looking groovy for the Championship strugglers after Fred Onyedinma slotted them into a surprise 25th minute lead but Bale levelled up on the stroke of half time.
Mourinho made ten changes to his starting line-up from the 3-1 victory at Sheffield United in the Prem last time out – and five from the one that began the 5-0 win at Marine in the previous round.
Having already guided them to a place in April’s Carabao Cup Final – where they will face Manchester City Mourinho saw his side take a step closer to another Wembley appearance as they booked a fifth round trip to Everton.
Well, you have to say the years starting in ‘2’ have not been that successful for them so far, in terms of silverware.
With five of their eight FA Cup successes coming in 1901, 1921, 1961, 1981 and 1991, it was always said to be lucky for Spurs when the year ended in one.
