Spurs Do The Double!

super-sunday

Sunday 19 May:

Gareth Bale’s 43rd minute goal for Tottenham Hotspur in their 1-1 draw with West Brom set Spurs on course for the solitary point that was enough for them to win the Premier League this afternoon, and do the double after their FA Cup win last weekend. Spurs and Manchester United went into their matches level on points with just a single goal difference in Tottenham’s favour. Manchester United had to better the Spurs result and twice took the lead at Swansea only to be pegged back by goals from league top scorer Danny Graham in the eventful 2-2 draw. Back at White Hart Lane, Spurs had a nervy final few minutes after Assou-Ekotto saw red and United were pouring forward, but at the final whistle Spurs won the league for the first time since 1961 (when they also did the double).
