Tottenham fans react to performance of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in Newcastle draw

Tottenham Hotspur were denied all three points in stoppage time against Newcastle United as Callum Wilson tucked home a late penalty.

Spurs were on the wrong end of a VAR decision which adjudged Eric Dier to have handled in the box.

Despite the disappointment, one man who did impress with new signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg who enjoyed a solid afternoon in midfield.

Tottenham added the Danish maestro to their ranks in the summer from Southampton, paying £15 million for his services.

The 25-year-old has started all three of Tottenham’s games this season but was left out of Thursday’s Europa League game against Shkendija.

Hojbjerg already looks like a decent acquisition by Mourinho and against Newcastle, he worked wonderfully well alongside Harry Winks.

Tottenham will hope to improve on their sixth-place finish last season in Mourinho’s first full season in charge.

Players like Hojbjerg will therefore be desperately important to those plans and he already looks like a decent addition.

Following today’s game supporters took to Twitter to rave about the new man and couldn’t hide their delight at his performance.

Here is a selection of Tweets from the Tottenham supporters regarding the performance of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.
