There has been a second homecoming for Gareth Bale as he left Real Madrid on a loan deal to join former side Tottenham.

Mourinho has gradually introduced Bale into his team, and the Welsh international is gradually becoming a bit like the star we know.

Former Chelsea midfielder and player manager Glenn Hoddle, who also managed Tottenham, believes that Mourinho will try to use Bale as a secret weapon in this weekend’s meeting.

“I’ve got a sneaky feeling that Gareth Bale might have a big say in that game,” Hoddle said on his podcast.

“I think Mourinho might be holding him up his sleeve. That’s the sort of game where you could just see him.

“He played 90 minutes for Wales, and you could see him turning it on in a game like that.

“It wouldn’t surprise me if Mourinho hasn’t got him earmarked for Chelsea.”
