Darron Gibson confident over Coleman role

Everton's Seamus Coleman
Darron Gibson has backed Everton team-mate Seamus Coleman to stop Gareth Bale when the Blues travel to Spurs on Sunday.

Everton will hope to maintain their push for a top-four finish this season with a positive result at White Hart Lane this weekend.

However, they will again have to keep star man Bale quiet and Gibson says fellow Irishman Coleman knows how to combat the Welsh wizard after restricting him in the first fixture between the sides earlier in the campaign – and also last term.

“Seamus has dealt with him quite well the last two times he has played against him,” Gibson told the club’s website.

“I think he (Bale) has been unbelievable. He’s won games for Spurs on his own.”

He added: “It’s good for English football and it’s good for Spurs but hopefully he is not good on Sunday against us. I think he is up there with the best in Europe at the minute.”
