‘Should be there’, ‘looked sharper’: Some Spurs fans want ‘amazing’ 23-year-old to start in derby

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have called for Steven Bergwijn to start for Spurs in the North London derby on Sunday.

The 23-year-old has largely been a rotational player for Jose Mourinho this season, with 13 appearances in all competitions, eight of those being starts.

Bergwijn is yet to get on the scoresheet this season, but he has done well for the most part when called upon, and was especially bright against LASK in midweek.

The Dutchman came off the bench with 25 minutes to go, and it didn’t take long for him to make an impact as he won the penalty which Dele Alli converted to put Spurs 3-2 up.

Though Tottenham conceded late on for a final score of 3-3, it was nonetheless a decent shift from the January signing.

In addition, Bergwijn also offers a lot defensively as he often tracks back, and with Arsenal boasting several strong attacking players, he’d certainly be a good shout on the right flank.

Gareth Bale, in comparison, doesn’t tend to track back as often, and with this in mind, some fans reckon the Netherlands international should be starting.

Here is what some supporters have been saying on social media:
