Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s display

And some of his passes forward were exactly what Spurs were crying out for. He broke the lines on a few occasions with his balls into the likes of Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.

But Hojbjerg’s performance prompted many supporters to take to social media to suggest that he was one player who did step up.

And they felt that the contrast between the first and second-half displays just highlighted how important he has become.

Here is how some of the supporters reacted to Hojbjerg’s performance…
