Steven Bergwijn goal vs Man Utd: Harry Maguire error allows Spurs to draw first blood. David De Gea fared no better with the gloves.
Manchester United are taking on Tottenham in their first game since the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Both sides are coming off contrasting fortunes. Tottenham are yet to win a game in their last 6 matches across all competitions. United on the other hand, have remained unbeaten in their last 11 games across all competitions.
Past records went out for a toss however, considering how long football remained shut. Both teams begin from nought and it has showed in the game tonight. United had only conceded twice in their last 11 games. Tonight however, it took them only 30 minutes to concede one in the most erroneous of ways.
Watch: Steven Bergwijn goal vs Man Utd
Tottenham’s Steven Bergwijn picked up a Sissoko header from 40 yards out and dribbled it into the box. He drove down the right and stepped inside. Manchester United captain Harry Maguire did his side no favours by allowing the youngster to go past him without a hitch.
With just the keeper in front of him Bergwijn sent the ball towards De Gea’s way who made a mess and allowed it to slip into the net. Not a lot of keepers would have been able to save it, but someone with De Gea’s reputation and quality should have blocked it.

At the time of writing, Tottenham are still a goal ahead in the game with another half to play between the sides. United will hope to score at least one more to continue their unbeaten run. Mourinho on the other hand, will hope he can keep his former side quiet while adding a few more goals to their score to bring their barren run to an end.
