Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has been talking forward of Tottenham’s recreation towards Christian Eriksen’s Brentford and claims Spurs will probably be judged on how they carry out, whatever the media focus within the build-up.
The Danish worldwide has cast a powerful partnership with Rodrigo Bentancur within the coronary heart of the Lilywhite midfield of late, particularly within the absence of Oliver Skipp.
Tottenham presently sit fourth within the Premier League desk, forward of North London rivals, Arsenal on objective distinction with six video games to go.
Below Antonio Conte, Spurs have reworked from mid-table mediocrity into the entrance runners for the Champions League remaining spot, one thing Hojbjerg doesn’t draw back from.
He instructed Sky Sports activities: “There is no such thing as a hiding from the top-four race, ultimately, there are three or 4 groups within the race – who needs it? There is no such thing as a hiding.
“We are able to all sit and discuss as a lot as we would like but it surely’s about getting the factors on the pitch, to indicate the consistency, the standard, the need, to verify the factors find yourself in your pocket and the achievement is available in your favour.
“There are a lot of nice groups within the race, within the Premier League, which is why it’s an honour and a fantastic problem to play within the Premier League. However I belief my crew so much and I’m positive we have now the standard to realize this.
This no-nonsense perspective will hopefully resonate by the squad and permit them to maintain the hype behind their minds and concentrate on every recreation because it comes.
Hojbjerg has a fantastic mentality and that has been clear for the reason that Mourinho days. The picture of him and his boss on the time screaming at one another in delight after a win on the Etihad will reside lengthy within the reminiscence.
The Dane is strictly proper to need to concentrate on the job at hand and put all of it on the market on the pitch. Some media retailers hardly ever paint Spurs in a beneficial gentle, seeing them as a promoting membership and nothing extra, as made clear by protection of Harry Kane’s switch saga final summer time, so it’s possible media hype is being ignored, not less than by these in N17.
