Many Tottenham Hotspur fans have flocked to a tweet from Football.london journalist Alasdair Gold which relayed the news that Steven Bergwijn is available for selection once again for the Lilywhites’ Premier League clash with Sheffield United on Sunday after returning to training this past Tuesday following an illness.

Bergwijn hasn’t played for Spurs since enjoying a full 90 minutes and providing an assist in their 3-0 win over Leeds United earlier this month. 

Now that Gold has shared the news he is available once again, his tweet has caught the attention of a lot of Spurs supporters. 

So, how have these Tottenham Hotspur fans reacted to this news about Steven Bergwijn? 

This update drew a largely positive reaction from fans of the north London club.

One fan even claimed that it looks like Mourinho’s side will now be beating Sheffield United. Interestingly, Bergwijn hasn’t exactly been at his best so far this season, producing just one assist and averaging a rating of 6.36, which puts him as the club’s 18th highest ranked player in the Premier League this season. However, he did manage to produce a stunning chip in training, so perhaps this fan is going off that clip alone.

All in all, it’s clear that despite the fact Bergwijn has earned a lower overall WhoScored rating (6.36/10) than as many as 17 other Lilywhites players in the Premier League this season, which would indicate that he hasn’t enjoyed a very positive campaign, he is a highly-valued member of the squad in the eyes of many supporters.
