journalist Michael Bridge hopes that Tottenham Hotspur winger Steven Bergwijn can take the Premier League season by the scruff of the neck.

The Netherlands international has yet to really explode at Spurs following his arrival from Eindhoven during last season’s transfer window.

In total, Bergwijn has made 53 appearances for the club and has scored four goals, while also laying on nine assists.

The 23-year-old has somewhat struggled to hit the back of the net throughout his time at Spurs, notably missing gilt-edged chances against Liverpool last season and against Manchester City on the opening day of the season, when he was one-on-one with goalkeeper Ederson.

Bridge does not believe he has yet developed into a truly elite player but he is hopeful that the forward can prove his critics wrong this season under manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

He said: “I’m going to be completely honest. I haven’t seen enough to say he’s a top drawer player.

“But I would love nothing more for him to turn around and take this season by storm.”

Bergwijn has started both games this season, with Spurs beating Manchester City and Wolves by a goal to nil.
