Gareth Bale scored a sensational solo goal to earn Tottenham a 1-1 draw at Norwich , ensuring the visitors stayed fourth in the English Premier League .

The Wales winger moved to 10 goals for the campaign after running with the ball from inside his own half, cutting inside and smashing a rising shot into the corner from just inside the area in the 80th minute.

Wes Hoolahan put Norwich ahead in the 32nd, turning a finish home from eight yards (meters) from Anthony Pilkington's cut-back.

A third straight draw saw Spurs' grip on the final Champions League spot loosen, with Everton just a point behind in fifth after its win over West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday.

Lewis Holtby made his debut for Tottenham as a second-half substitute.
