Bobby Zamora has said that Gareth Bale deserves to start four or five games in a row for Tottenham on the back of his impressive second-half performance in the 2-1 defeat to West Ham United on Thursday.

Bale came on as a half-time substitute and was extremely unlucky not to get an equaliser after his thundering strike from the edge of the box came off the woodwork, with Lukasz Fabianski beaten.

Zamora urged Mourinho to hand the Welshman a run of matches so that he can show his qualities, while former Spurs defender Gary Stevens insisted that the 31-year-old needs to have a strong end to the season if he is to continue his career at the top-level.

I believe Mourinho would have handed a Bale a start against West Ham if he thought the Welshman’s body could handle the load. There is always a risk in starting him two matches in a row in quick succession but there is no doubt that Bale will play much more regularly over the next few months on the back of his recent displays.
