Moussa Sissoko has admitted that Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has impressed the Tottenham squad with the quality he has shown since he arrived at the club.

Hojbjerg was Tottenham’s first arrival of the summer transfer window but he was seen as a steady and solid signing rather than one that is going to take the club to the next level.

However, the midfielder has been one of Spurs’ standout players so far this campaign and has shielded the back four admirably.

He has displayed a fantastic ability to read the game and can be constantly seen shouting our instructions to his teammates.

The Dane started the season playing as a part of a two-man pivot with Harry Winks but the England international has now seemingly lost his place to Sissoko.

A midfield three of Hojbjerg, Sissoko and Ndombele now looks to be Jose Mourinho’s first choice, with the trio showing that they can complement each other quite nicely.

When asked if he enjoys playing with Hojbjerg, Sissoko told Football.London: “We are very pleased to have Pierre in this team. I think since he came, since his first game, he’s shown all of his quality. He brings a lot of energy to the team.

“He’s a great midfield player. Of course, he’s young, but he also has some experience because he’s been playing in a few teams before.

“To play with him of course is nice. Every player will play with him, like when Winksy played a few games with him he was very happy to play with him. That’s good.

“Hopefully he’s going to keep going in that way and keep bringing all of his energy and his ability on the pitch, even with the ball he’s a good footballer.

“I think he’s a good addition to the squad and he’s shown it since he came and I hope he will keep going in that way.”
