Steven Bergwijn does not belong to the selection of Tottenham Hotspur for the league game against Southampton. The reason for the attacker’s absence is unknown; This season; when Bergwijn was fit; he was always part of the squad of players. Lucas Moura isn’t there either: according to journalist Jonathan Veal from PA sports he gets rest. The away game against Southampton starts at 4pm on Tuesday.

Bergwijn has played eight Premier League games this season; including five as a substitute. He hasn’t scored yet. Bergwijn scored a goal and an assist in last Wednesday’s EFL Cup game against West Ham United (2-1 win); in which he had a starting place. On Sunday he was allowed to come on as a substitute for 27 minutes in the league game against Crystal Palace (3-0).

football zone has inquired with the management of Bergwijn but has not yet received an answer as to the reason for his absence. Tottenham’s line-up features a few changes from the Crystal Palace game; with Dele Alli replacing Lucas Moura; Harry Winks replacing Oliver Skipp and Ben Davies being chosen over Japhet Tanganga.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte said on Monday that Bergwijn was improving “every day”. “He also shows me that he can be a good option;” said Conte. This is one of the reasons why it is noticeable that Bergwijn is missing in the last competitive game of the year. He has long been in the explicit interest of Ajax; among others; but Sky Sports reported last week that the attacker’s future lies in London. Ajax officially signed Bergwijn back in early December and Sevilla and some French and German clubs would also enlist his services.
