“The team’s playing well,” insists the world-class Welshman.
Gareth Bale has insisted that Tottenham are not a man team, despite scoring eight of the club’s last ten goals in all competitions.
The Welshman’s stunning form continued on Monday as his 14th and 15th league goals of the season helped Spurs to a 3-2 win over West Ham and lifted the Lilywhites into third in the Premier League.
Spurs face neighbours Arsenal in the North London derby on Sunday knowing that win will leave them seven points clear of the Gunners, who currently lie fifth.
With Jermain Defoe unfit and Emmanuel Adebayor hopelessly off-form, Bale is likely to be crucial to Spurs attack again at White Hart Lane.
But the 23-year-old believes his performances alone cannot inspire the club to a place in next season’s Champions League.
“I’m just enjoying the football. The team’s playing well which makes things easier. But it’s not about me it’s about the team,” Bale told Sky Sports.
“We know it’s going to be a massive game , they are a great team. We obviously want to get the three points to keep our Champions League hopes alive.
“Yeah, it was a massive victory for us. We knew the result for us yesterday, we knew we had a massive chance to get into third, which obviously gives us more of a cushion.”
Bale opened the scoring at Upton Park with a trademark left-foot drive before Andy Carroll and Joe Cole handed the home side a second half lead.
But Gylfi Sigurdsson’s scuffed equaliser made it 2-2 before Bale struck a stunning 30-yard winner in the final minute.
“It was a hard performance out there but I thought we deserved the victory,” added the Wales international.
“We had a lot of chances, especially off corners. Caulks [Steven Caulker] had a few chances, one went on the post, Ade [Adebayor] had an easy one. The important thing was we got the three points.
“We know what we’re capable of. We’ve got some last-minute winners in the last month. So we’re confident and we keep battling until the end.”
