Pierre Hojbjerg had another stand out game for Spurs yesterday afternoon making just two unsuccessful passes throughout the entire match. The hustle and the management of those around him was immense.
We were treated to a thunderous shot from a distance which, which fortunately for the Arsenal goalie – was aimed straight at him.
This is a typical class move from the Dane, who dropped back into defence to pick the ball up from the toes of two Arsenal players and proceed to effortlessly dribble the ball away to safety.
Always driving the play forwards, Pierre won all his aerial duels against Arteta’s failures. There’s a nice little ball from Reguilon to Sonny in this one, too.
Hojbjerg made 10 recoveries of the ball, which has much to do with his excellent positional awareness. José Mourinho’s congratulations to Mr Levy comment was not in any respect a throwaway remark. Our gaffer has turned Pierre Hojbjerg into an extremely expensive player.
