Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg didn’t have the best of starts to life at the club as his adjustment period took longer than would’ve originally been hoped, but he did show flashes of what he was capable of when he didn’t go missing in matches.

The Denmark international began impressing more towards the end of the 2017/18 campaign as we avoided relegation back to the Championship after a poor season and the 23-year-old has simply gone from strength to strength in 2018/19, despite yet more struggles for the club overall.

With 16 appearances so far this season, he returned two early goals in September and will be looking to add more, but following the restoration of hope with the victory last Sunday over Arsenal, Southampton fans on social media have been discussing his importance to us now – few doubters remain given his efforts.

It’s good to see the turnaround for the lad as few can question his commitment on the pitch these days and long may that continue – as epitomised by the fact he’s slowly becoming our regular skipper.
