Steven Bergwijn booked his place in the Spurs history books on Friday night after his goal on Friday night meant that he has become just the second player in the club’s history to score in all of his first three home games (Goal.com).

Bergwijn hit the ground running after arriving from PSV Eindhoven in January when he netted a brilliant volley on his home debut against Manchester City.

The Dutch international also found the back of the net in Spurs’ 3-2 defeat to Wolves back in March.

The 22-year-old gave Spurs the lead on Friday evening when he raced past two United defenders to thump the ball into the back of the net past David De Gea.

The strike meant that Bergwijn had become just the second Spurs player to find the back of the net in his first three home matches after his compatriot Rafael van der Vaart, who notched in games against Wolves, Aston Villa and Everton in 2010.

Spurs Web Opinion

Bergwijn’s goal and assist numbers in the Eredivisie were sensational but there were always going to be question marks over whether he would have a similar impact in the Premier League.

So far, the winger has shown that he has a knack of making the difference in the final third, and this is hopefully just the start of what is to come from the Dutchman over the next few years.
