Bale equalised after a magnificent solo run from inside his own half. But Norwich midfielder Alex Tettey came under fire from Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas for his attempted tackle on Bale early in his run.

"Had the boy got on to Gareth's ankle it's an injury that takes him out for six months," the Portuguese said.

Hughton was not happy with Villas-Boas' comments, saying: "I'm surprised by that.

"The way that Bale went past him there didn't seem too much wrong with Gareth Bale to me. I don't think anybody got near him.

"We could pick holes in where the play started, could we have stopped it at the source? And arguably we could've done.

"Occasionally you have to hold your hand up and just say it's a great goal by a top-class player."

errible night all round. This was a team there for the taking yet I fail to recall their 'keeper making a notable save. Sterling decided to have his worst game ever, Coutinho only provided about two good passes all game and Balotelli continues to frustrate. The less said about the set piece defending the better. Daniel Sturridge cannot came back soon enough. The lack of a real threat in the final third is so surprising, no killer pass, not testing...
