Tottenham’s new arrival Steven Bergwinjn has bravely claimed that the club are plotting a title challenge next season.

The 22-year-old was thrown straight into the side by Jose Mourinho against Manchester City just a few days after completing a £27 million move from PSV Eindhoven.

The skilful forward announced himself to the Spurs faithful in dramatic fashion as he struck a lovely volley past Ederson to break the deadlock and send the Lilywhites on their way to a 2-0 win over the reigning Premier League champions.

The Dutchman admitted what happened on his debut against Pep Guardiola’s side a couple of weeks ago was the stuff of dreams.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “It was a hard game but we worked hard for each other. I didn’t know what to do [when I scored].

“Mourinho was happy for me, but he was happy that we got the three points, he told me just to play. He has worked with a lot of big players so he knows what he is doing.”

The Dutch international also insisted that he and the team are aiming to bring a first Premier League title to Spurs next season.

When asked about the club’s ambitions for the next campaign, Bergwinjn said: “Everything that is possible. I think we have to look to next season and everybody wants to be champions. [I want] to win as much as possible, I want to achieve that.”

Spurs Web Opinion

As impressed as I was by the effort Bergwijn put in against Manchester City, he didn’t really get to show what he could do due to the fact that we had so little of the ball. We will likely have a majority of the ball against Villa and so will be able to judge him better on Sunday.
