Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to another lively performance from winger Steve Bergwijn, after the club beat Aston Villa 3-2 in the Premier League.
The Netherlands ace was again selected to start by Jose Mourinho for Sunday’s game with the relegation-threatened side, following a fine debut against Manchester City.
Bergwijn joined the club from PSV Eindhoven in January in a deal reported to be worth around £27 million (BBC Sport).
Bergwijn opened the scoring with a stunning volley against City, leaving fans purring over the player and his potential.
His good form continued at Villa Park, with Bergwijn troubling Villa’s defence throughout.
According to @TalkingTHFC, the 22-year-old completed 86% of his passes, made three key passes, had 100% crossing accuracy and aerial duels won. He also won a penalty, which Heung-min Son couldn’t convert.
It was another promising performance from the forward, who again left Spurs fans impressed with how sharp he looked.
Tottenham fans react
It was not the best performance from Spurs with the defensive fragility still there for all to see, but Bergwijn was one of the few shining lights for Spurs, and fans expressed their excitement on social media:
Bergwijn is the best signing from the January transfer window, not even a debate

Bergwijn got a touch of Lennon about him. Those days when everyone in WHL stood up when Lennon got the ball and you could hear the seats go, unreal times.

LOOOOL proper Jose Mourinho first half performance that. Bergwijn is a little baller as well man.

I have scrutinised our transfer dealings at times, but the capture of Steven Bergwijn looks to be some really good business.

That performance was soooo weird. At one end a liability. Some really poor performances. And yet I don’t remember the last time we created so many clearcut chances. Dele’s movement was absolutely incredible but his finishing consistently let him down. Bergwijn top class.

Very impressed with Bergwijn today, the pace & dribbling, he’s clever in his moves and defends. Great pass to cut the defense early on too. Also seems to be a very nice & honest guy. Perfect fit of our club.

Bergwijn is quality 😍 and the vision of Lo Celso. Get Ndombele on for 20 mins

I agree. Bergwijn was our most dangerous player. Can’t for the life of me figure out why we played almost everything down the right through Aurier instead of getting Bergwijn more involved. #COYS #THFC @SpursOfficial
