Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Some Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to the performance of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg against Norwich City on Friday evening.

Hojbjerg was in action for Southampton in their Premier League game against Norwich away from home at Carrow Road.

The 24-year-old midfielder started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the Saints won 3-0.

According to WhoScored, against Norwich on Friday evening, Hojbjerg had a pass accuracy of 77.6%, won two headers, attempted three dribbles, and made five tackles, four interceptions and one clearance.

Hojbjerg had been hitting the headlines in the build-up to the game, with manager Ralph Hasenhuttl telling The Times that the midfielder has decided not to sign a new contract.

The Denmark international will be out of contract at the Saints at the end of next season, with Hasenhuttl saying that he will not be the club captain for the rest of the games this season.

According to The Times, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing the former Bayern Munich midfielder in the summer transfer window and are hoping to do a deal for £20 million.

The win against Norwich means that Southampton are 13th in the Premier League table at the moment with 37 points from 30 matches, as many as 10 points above the relegation zone.
