Tottenham newcomer Steven Bergwijn made his Premier League debut on Sunday against Manchester City and scored a goal in the 63rd minute as Tottenham celebrated a 2-0 victory.

Following the game, the Spurs manager Jose Mourinho praised the 22-year-old.

“It was a good goal and a very good performance. Very solid, very mature. He worked hard during the week,” said Mourinho.

“He arrived on Tuesday, so he had the week to work and to try as fast a possible to understand what we wanted from him.

“So it was a very solid performance against such a difficult opponent like Kyle Walker. He was also clever enough to appear in other zones and to try to create some problems for City.”

Bergwijn joined Tottenham from PSV during the January transfer window.
