Bale: 'My best is yet to come'

Gareth Bale sent out a warning to Tottenham's rivals by declaring he is yet to reach his peak.

Bale came to Tottenham's rescue once again last night by scoring two sensational free-kicks to hand Andre Villas-Boas' men a 2-1 victory over Lyon in the Europa League.

Without the 15 goals scored by the in-form Welshman, Spurs would sit 10th in the Barclays Premier League, rather than fourth.

"It's probably the best I've been playing so far in my career, but I've still got room for improvement," Bale said after the 2-1 win.

"Season after season I have to improve in all areas. I just want to keep doing that, keep working hard and, hopefully, keep getting better.

"I've just got to keep my head down, keep working hard, keep trying to keep my form."
