A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to praise Steven Bergwijn’s display as Jose Mourinho’s Spurs recorded a second consecutive victory in pre-season.
Having begun the 2020-21 programme with a 3-0 win over Ipswich last Saturday, Championship side Reading made the trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this afternoon.
Bergwijn missed out at the weekend but was named in Tottenham’s starting XI against the Royals, a game which the hosts won 4-1.
An early Omar Richards own goal saw Spurs gifted the lead, before great Dele Alli and Son Heung-min finishes, plus an Erik Lamela free kick, had Mourinho’s side four up.
George Puscas then netted a consolation from the penalty spot for the Royals 10 minutes from time.
In the first half, Bergwijn picked up Lucas Moura’s ball down the left flank and delivered towards the centre of the box for Son to net Spurs’ third goal.
The 22-year-old was a constant threat after the break too, continuing to look dangerous on the left, until being subbed off on 61 minutes.
Some Spurs supporters were pleased with the Dutchman’s display and shared their thoughts on social media:
Unreal play 3-0 sonny could easily be 5-0 brilliant performance, bergwijn looked great and Harvey has done a great job in midfield

Sonny! Great composure from Bergwijn to pick him out. Dele & Lucas have been starting some dangerous moves

Bergwijn’s first touch and back control is really impressive

Impressive half from Bergwijn – Close control of ball and decision making impeccable

If this is how we’re set up to play this season, then I’m very excited, Højbjerg winning every ball in midfield, Lucas/Bergwijn looking sharp as well, defensively look far more confident now, not jumping to conclusions but there’s plenty to feel optimistic about for us #COYS
