Tottenham coach Espírito Santo is shy about Bergwijn’s schedule as Arsenal looms

Nuno Espírito Santo shy about Bergwijn's injury ahead of Sunday's North London Derby clash against Arsenal

The Dutch international could miss the clash against Arsenal

Tottenham coach Nuno Espírito Santo remained shy around the injury recovery period held up by Dutch international winger Steven Bergwijn during Spurs’ 2-2 Europa Conference League draw with Stade Rennais last week.

The Portuguese manager addressed a number of questions in his press conference in the run-up to his Carabao Cup third round match with former manager Wolves at Molineux, but did not answer the key question about his availability for Sunday;

He has a foot injury, a sprain, a sprained ankle. It is very, very painful and the decision was to protect her foot while still doing upper body workouts and trying to stay as fit as possible. But the injury should calm down and keep you from feeling pain. It is very painful now.

I can’t answer that [if he will be fit to face Arsenal]. All injuries have a process. We hope the players improve. We did not enjoy it. It is painful to see them leave. But at the same time, we are hopeful that they will recover sooner or later and can rejoin the group. “

Bergwijn’s absence amid Tottenham attacking questions

Espírito Santo has recently come under fire when it comes to Tottenham’s inability to play the kind of football that is befitting the club’s overall hopeful track record.

To date, Spurs have scored just three goals in their first five Premier League games as they suffer heavy 3-0 back-to-back defeats at the hands of city rivals Crystal Palace and Chelsea.

Bergwijn has yet to really settle for living in Tottenham after his move from PSV Eindhoven during the January window in the 2019-20 season. To date, the Dutch international has found the back of the net just four times and has added nine assists in 56 appearances across all competitions in what is now the start of his second full season in North London.

But despite his own struggles, Bergwijn’s pace, technical tricks and attacking instincts that made him a huge success at Philips Stadion from 2017 to early 2020 (27 goals and 33 assists in 81 Eredivisie games) ) are perfectly adapted to how Nuno has been. he previously used his extensive options at Wolves; freedom of movement that depends on their rhythm and direct style of play when they are on the ball.

It is unknown how NES attempts to straighten the boat at Tottenham, but having a strike from Steven Bergwijn would hardly hurt their efforts.
