Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has faith that Steven Bergwijn will end his goal drought soon.

Bergwijn is yet to score in 11 games this season and missed some good chances in the win over Leeds United on Saturday.

However, Mourinho has total faith that the goals will come for the forward, and revealed he has been struggling physically.

Mourinho told BT Sport, “We need him to score goals. Of course, we know he has the ability to do that.

“If you go back one year, his first match and he scored an amazing goal (against Manchester City). We know that he has the ability to do that.

“He’s accumulating also physical problems. I don’t know if you could see but even in the last 10 minutes he was touching his groin, he was touching his adductor.

“He’s having problems that are stopping him now and again from training properly and at high intensity so he’s suffering a little bit.

“But of course he gives very good things to the team. I believe the goals will arrive if his condition improves.”
