With Bale, Tottenham's front three are as good as Liverpool's - Redknapp

The Welshman has picked up two La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns during his time at Santiago Bernabeu, while firing over 100 goals in all competitions, but he is no longer an important part of Zinedine Zidane's plans.

The 31-year-old has been given the chance to reignite his career at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and could line up for Jose Mourinho's side for the first time when they play host to West Ham on Sunday.

Spurs have made a strong start to the 2019-20 campaign, with a 6-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford before the international break underlining their top-four credentials, and will be expected to close the gap on league leaders Everton by picking up another three points against the Hammers.

Reining champions Liverpool failed to gain ground on their Merseyside neighbours after drawing 2-2 at Goodison Park on Saturday, despite goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, who have been a part of arguably the most dangerous attacking trio in Europe alongside Roberto Firmino in recent years.

“I’ve heard people saying that the Bale we see now won’t be a patch on the one who left Spurs for Real Madrid seven years ago, but I’m not having that.

Redknapp went on to compare Bale with his former Madrid team-mate Ronaldo, who now plies his trade in Italy with Juventus , while insisting there is far more to his game than just speed in the final third.
