Steven Bergwijn returned to action for Tottenham Hotspur last night when he was named in Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven to face Manchester United.
The Dutchman looked like he was set to miss the majority of the remainder of the season prior to the coronavirus pandemic when he suffered an ankle injury in the draw at Burnley in Match.
Bergwijn certainly showed that he has recovered from the injury when he showed electric pace to fire Spurs in front against United in the first half.
Spurs were unable to hold on for the win when Eric Dier brought down substitute Paul Pogba in the penalty area with nine minutes left to play.
The former PSV player denied that he was looking to target Harry Maguire after previously enjoying success against the Englishman at international level whilst also revealing that Joe Mourinho told his side to imagine that there were a million people inside the stadium to try and adapt to playing in front of no supporters for the remainder of the season.
