Gareth Bale tore Norwich apart with a brilliant brace as Tottenham moved to within seven points of Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester City with an easy win at Carrow Road.

After laying siege to the Norwich goal in the first half, Spurs finally found the opener 10 minutes after the break when Bale picked up Emmanuel Adebayor’s pass to drive under John Ruddy.

Bale then latched on to Luka Modric’s pass to sprint 45 yards before lifting the ball over the Norwich stopper with a sublime finish to kill off the match 12 minutes later.

Spurs’ north London rivals Arsenal were left frustrated as 10-man Wolves battled to a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners were ahead after eight minutes through Gervinho. But Wolves, struggling at the other end of the table, levelled on 38 minutes through Steven Fletcher and survived the dismissal of midfielder Nenad Milijas.
