Steven Bergwijn’s strike against Man City voted Tottenham’s goal of the month for February
January signing Steven Bergwijn’s debut goal against Manchester City has been voted as the Tottenham Hotspur goal of the month for February, according to the fans’ votes on Tottenhamhotspur.com.
It was a moment to remember for the Dutchman as he put Pep Guardiola’s defending champions to the sword. He displayed the verve and panache in the attack that Spurs fans had been screaming out for.
With the game tied at 0-0 after Hugo Lloris saved an Ilkay Gundagon penalty Bergwijn turned up to open the scoring. Lucas Moura’s pass was chested comfortably by the dutchman who then converted it into a brilliant volley into the far corner of Ederson’s goal.
The Manchester City keeper had no chance and was left eating grass as the ball nestled in the net.
Fans voted overwhelmingly for the 23-year-old’s strike and he gained an impressive 42 percent of the total vote. Heung-Min Son’s stoppage-time winner at Villa Park came in second with 35 percent of the votes.
The other goals in contention were Toby Alderweireld’s goal against Aston Villa, Son’s strike against Manchester City and Moura’s goal against Southampton. Emma Mitchell’s strike against Everton Women for Tottenham Women was also in the run, although it finished a distant fifth.
