Steven Bergwijn scored his third goal on Friday for Tottenham and manager Jose Mourinho is charmed to have the Dutch winger in his squad. Jose Mourinho acknowledges that Steven Bergwijn was not his first decision choice in the January window after joining Tottenham however is happy with the winger ‘s performance.

The Netherlands international opened the scoring in Friday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United to make it three goals in eight games for the London side. Bergwijn added an extra measurement to the attack on Spurs, and Mourinho is happy that the club proceeded with the deal, despite the fact that the left-sided attacker was not his main target.

“He’s a decent player. Congratulations to my club because he wasn’t my first choice before all else at long last it was a great choice. He’s a promising future possibility and we are more than pleased about that,” he said at Monday’s media gathering pre-match

Mourinho has a near-fit squad to pick against West Ham on Tuesday for the Premier League clash, with Dele Alli returning from suspension and Lucas Moura defeating a thump. And the Portuguese appreciate the possibility of handling their favorite attacking line-up just because of succeeding Mauricio Pochettino in November.

He said: “It’s simply uplifting news [on the injury front]. Lucas is back. Dele Alli is back from discipline and there have been no reports of wounds in the game against United. We haven’t lost any players and we have two extra players that make my squad is acceptable. It’s the first time since I arrived I have all six players available for attack. It’s an issue we love. I’ve had the difficulty we hate for quite a while. It’s generally excellent news for us because we need everybody.”

At midweek London derby, Juan Foyth will pass up a problematic knee injury, yet Mourinho denied claims that medical procedure is normal in the inside back.

Mourinho admits that lone accomplishment over West Ham can do to keep the dreams of playing in the Champions League next season alive on his side.
