The Welshman will be part of the side that welcomes the league leaders to White Hart Lane over the weekend. United are in good form and have gone unbeaten in their past nine games although Tottenham are one of the few sides that have managed to put three goals past them in a match.
Back in September, Tottenham won an electric encounter with Bale scoring one of the goals and the 3-2 loss remains the only domestic defeat suffered by Sir Alex Ferguson's men at home this season.
Bale believes that the result also helped inspire his team and they are now in fourth place, three points ahead of nearest challengers Everton, and are widely touted as the favourites for the final Champions League qualification berth.
The 23-year-old speedster went a step further and stated that he was also optimistic of his side achieving a league double over United on Sunday. Spurs have also been in superb form themselves as they have notched seven wins and two draws in their last 10 outings.
"That win [in September] stood us in good stead," commented Bale on the club website. "It gave us confidence and belief to do what we've done so far this season."
"It's a big test and will show where we are as a team.
"We haven't lost in a while and confidence is high. Okay, it was a scrappy game and a disappointing result at QPR [on Saturday], but we're all looking forward to United.
"We'll continue to do what we've been doing and hopefully we'll get the three points."
