Tottenham fans discuss Steven Bergwijn display at Chelsea on Twitter

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the performance of Steven Bergwijn after Spurs were beaten at Chelsea on Sunday.

Bergwijn, of course, forced his way into Antonio Conte’s starting lineup with his display against Leicester on Wednesday. It was the Dutchman who scored twice in stoppage-time to earn Tottenham the three points at the King Power Stadium.

Tottenham did appear to improve after going 2-0 down. The introduction of Lucas Moura and Oliver Skipp appeared to make a big difference. And Bergwijn had an opportunity to halve the deficit. However, his acrobatic effort was kept out.

Obviously, it was not a day where any Tottenham player really shone. And it is a worry that Spurs have now suffered three defeats in one month against Thomas Tuchel’s side.

But plenty of Tottenham fans felt that Bergwijn was one of their best performers. He looked lively alongside Kane. And no Spurs player completed more dribbles than the 24-year-old, according to Whoscored.

Tottenham fans will have always been wary of getting carried away off the back of Bergwijn’s brace in midweek. But they would have hoped for further positive signs.
