Gareth Bale’s second Spurs debut set after stunning Jose Mourinho in training

Gareth Bale is primed to make his second debut for Tottenham in the London derby against West Ham after impressing Jose Mourinho in training this week.

Bale joined Spurs on a season-long loan from Real Madrid last month but is yet to appear for them after picking up a knee injury while on international duty with Wales.

Fortunately for the Welshman, October's international break came at an ideal moment, giving him time to build up fitness in training.

And according to The Sun, the 31-year-old has been earmarked to feature for Spurs against the Hammers next Saturday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Bale is understood to have impressed Mourinho and his coaching staff with his quality and he is set to line-up alongside Harry Kane and Heung-min Son in the Spurs attack.

Spurs have made a satisfactory start to the season but laid down a statement of intent before the break by beating Manchester United 6-1.

And Bale's long-time agent Jonathan Barnett believes Spurs are now capable of winning the Premier League title.

"[They can] win the Premier League, without doubt," Barnett told Sky Sports.

"Tottenham have got a good squad, a great coach and with Gareth's help I'm sure they will get very close.

"You only have to see the results from last week to see that it's open.

"It kills me to say that because I'm an Arsenal supporter, but that's the reality.

"He has nothing to prove to anybody. He's won more than anybody else.

"He was one of the best three or four players in the world and I think he still is.

"If he succeeds, great, If not, he's been there and done it. But, I think he will succeed."
