Spurs ace Steven Bergwijn sets excellent record


Steven Bergwijn kept up his habit of scoring in every home Premier League game he has played in for Tottenham Hotspur on Friday night.

The Netherlands international joined Spurs in the January transfer window, arriving from PSV Eindhoven.

Since then, he has played three times at home, against Manchester City, Wolves and, on Friday, Manchester United.

He scored the opening goal against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, slaloming through the United defence from the right flank, reaching the penalty area, and firing beyond David de Gea in the away goal.

It keeps up a remarkable record, as Bergwijn also scored on his debut, against Manchester City, and in the 3-2 defeat to Wolves.

He is, thus, only the second Spurs player to score in his first three home games in the league, following in the footsteps of fellow Dutchman Rafael van der Vaart.

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

This is really impressive.

Bergwijn is a tricky, pacey player and that was on show against United on Friday, cutting in from the wing and burning past centre-back Harry Maguire.

His finish was aided by some poor goalkeeping from de Gea but the skill required to get into the area perhaps deserved a slice of fortune.

He has begun his Spurs career in excellent form and, with the Premier League back up and running, Bergwijn will surely have a huge role to play.

Continue in this vein and Spurs may well have a sniff of Champions League football.
