Welshman was the night's top scorer as Spurs ease to win
Gareth Bale scored twice, earning himself six Fantasy League points, as Tottenham beat Wigan 3-1 to keep on the coat-tails of the two Manchester clubs.
Fellow midfielder Luka Modric scored the other one, and made one of Bale's to earn five FL points.
Full-back Kyle Walker was seconds away from earning a clean sheet for playing 75 minutes without conceding, but was withdrawn in the 74th minute and so only scored 1 FL point on the night.
Elsewhere, Manchester United beat Stoke 2-0 and were helped out by a former midfielder who scored the winner for Everton to beat Manchester City 1-0.
Liverpool eased to a 3-0 win over struggling Wolves, with Charlie Adam scoring four FL points for two assists, and Chelsea left it late to earn a 1-1 draw at Swansea.

Ex-Manchester United man Darron Gibson scored the only goal of the game, lashing home from the edge of the box, via a slight deflection, after a lay-off from Landon Donovan.

The unfortunate Neil Taylor gave Chelsea a point in stoppage time when he inadvertently turned Jose Bosingwa's effort pas his own goalkeeper.
Tottenham 3 Wigan 1
Gareth Bale fired Tottenham in front on the half-hour mark, latching onto a wonderful Luka Modric pass he controlled the ball on his chest and acrobatically found the back of the net.
Modric doubled the lead five minutes later with an opportunist's strike, finding the bottom corner of the net after the ball bounced off two Wigan defenders and fell kindly for him.

Wigan pulled a goal back late-on when Victor Moses found James McArthur and his shot deflected off a defender up over Brad Friedel and in.

Craig Bellamy scored a fine individual goal to increase the lead, running from the halfway line and scoring with a low shot after picking up the ball from Jay Spearing.
Dirk Kuyt completed the scoring, with his 50th Premier League goal, slotting home from a tight angle after being found by Adam.
