Tottenham Hotspur 3 Wigan Athletic 1: Modric and Bale put Wigan to the sword

It was one of those games where Spurs look like the best team in England. The opposition were lowly Wigan Athletic, but we killed them nonetheless.

Gareth Bale opened the scoring after half an hour. Luka Modric crossed, Bale took the ball on his chest and got his leg high with the flexibility of a gymnast to poke the ball past Ali Al-Habsi.

Modric buried a half-volley in the bottom corner from the edge of the box to double the lead and in the second half Bale got our third with another strike from range similar in its precision.

Wigan put us under pressure for periods and with Jake Livermore moving to cover Kyle Walker at right-back we were vulnerable and conceded a consolation goal, James McArthur’s shot deflecting off Scott Parker and looping over Brad Friedel and into the net.
