Spurs fans react to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's display
A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s display as Spurs got back to winning ways by beating Wolves on Sunday.
Ryan Mason’s men had a point to prove after a completely uninspiring display last weekend. But they stepped up against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
Goals from Harry Kane and Hojbjerg won the game for the home team. But had it not been for some amazing last-ditch defending and some outstanding goalkeeping, Tottenham would have won by a bigger margin.
Hojbjerg showed great desire to find the back of the net to double Spurs’ lead, having already provided the pass that set Kane up for the opener. And many of the Tottenham fans on social media felt that his performance was a real return to form for the Dane.
Hojbjerg – who earns around £102,000-a-week, according to Spotrac – has been sensational at times this season. But some felt that he had gone off the boil somewhat in more recent times.
According to Whoscored, no player completed more passes than Hojbjerg. He also won three challenges and made two interceptions.
And that left many Tottenham fans insisting that he was Spurs’ man of the match on a much better day for Mason’s men.
They are also extremely excited about what he could potentially do next season under a new manager and perhaps with a regular partner in the middle of the park.
With that in mind, here is what some of the fans were saying about Hojbjerg’s display…
Hojbjerg again brilliant shielding 👏🏻
He’s been outstanding today.
