In the 26th minute of this evening’s mammoth encounter between Tottenham and Manchester United, Steven Bergwijn fired Spurs into the lead with a powerful strike.
Luke Shaw’s headed clearance backfired, leaving the full-back out of position when the ball floated into Bergwijn’s path.
The 22-year-old burst past Fred and glided past Harry Maguire like he wasn’t even there before skipping into the box and firing a powerful strike towards goal.
David de Gea will be subject to criticism after he failed to keep the shot out of the net.
Take a look at the Dutch international’s opener below:

Bergwijn fires Spurs ahead but Manchester United will not be happy with that!
