'Brilliant': Oliver Skipp says two Spurs teammates have improved so much they've just gone to 'another level'

Oliver Skipp has praised two fellow Tottenham central midfielders Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur.

Spurs signed Yves Bissouma in the summer, but Hojbjerg and Bentancur have still been the most important midfield duo for Antonio Conte this term.

Skipp has struggled for fitness but will also have a job on his hands dislodging the Dane and the Uruguayan who are gearing up for international duty at the World Cup.

As per Football.London, Skipp said that the pair have gone to another level this season, adding goals to their game.

Skipp on Bentancur and Hojbjerg

“To be fair, those two especially have been brilliant this season,” he said.

“I think in the last month or so they’ve even gone on another level again, so I’m watching and learning from them, trying to take bits from their games and seeing what they’re doing well at the moment.

“They’re getting more goals and assists this season which they’ve added to their game, so they’ve been fantastic for us and credit to them.

“I think all the midfield group, with Yves and the young lads as well, Harvey White and Pape Matar Sarr, we’re all pushing each other.”

Conte puts a lot of onus on his central midfield duo, and they have to do plenty in terms of covering the ground but also getting forward to score.

Bentancur has scored some crucial goals of late, including a double in Saturday’s 4-3 win over Leeds United to round off before the World Cup.

Hojbjerg has come up trumps in the Champions League as Spurs got through to the knockout stages after a group stage which was not comfortable but was ultimately successful.
