It was only the other week that Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg was taking criticism following his sending off in the Premier League game against Leicester City for two bookable offences.

One of those included going down very softly indeed in the penalty box and as the youngsters say these days (I think) he got ‘pelters for it’ and plenty reflected on the 23-year-old Dane’s career at St Mary’s Stadium so far where consistency has been an issue for many.

Hojbjerg is now two starts shy of the 50 milestone for the club but with substitute appearances factored in he’s already broken that mark and with Leicester disappointment, he bounced back in the right manner by finding the back of the net in the recent victory over Crystal Palace.

That certainly turned to the tide back in his favour as the above social media comments show. As they also show he’s showed signs of what he can do, so if he can add consistency now and really build on that he could become the player plenty hope he will be – and then we’ll have other issues to contend with.
