Wales international Bale has scored four goals in his last three games for Tottenham, taking his tally in the Premier League this season to 15 as they push for a Champions League spot.

Holtby, who arrived at White Hart Lane from Schalke in last month's transfer window, knows the winger is an integral part of Andre Villas-Boas' side.

But the 22-year-old insists there is more to Spurs than just Bale.

He told the Daily Star: "He's a world-class player. What he's producing week in, week out is fantastic and to have a player like Bale makes the difference.

"But it's not only Gareth. You have to give the credit to the others. It's a great team. Of course he scores goals. He is perfect for us but every player in the team works hard for the club.

"You see (goalkeeper) Hugo Lloris, how he saved the chance at the end against Newcastle. The defenders put their bodies into every shot. Everyone is working really hard, that's the key."
