The performance of the Danish star has been highly regarded by pundits.

Jamie Redknapp and Gary Neville praised

Tottenham Hotspur

midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and claimed he was a perfect fit for Jose Mourinho.

The Danish midfielder was on the pitch during today's Tottenham Hotspur match against Arsenal and performed well to give his side a win with goals from Son Heung Min and Harry Kane, and Mourinho's team returned to the top of the Premier League table. Although the brilliance of Son Heung Min and

Harry Kane

was praised and grabbed headlines, Sky Sports pundits praised the Danish midfielder and highlighted his role in Spurs.

“He’s doing some job for the team,"

Redknapp told Sky Sports

. "I was at his first game when he played against Everton and I thought he might be a bit out of his depth here.

"He’s almost like a player and a coach for Jose, you can see the relationship the two of them have.

"He does the dirty work, wins the ball back, second balls all the time. He looks very comfortable in this Tottenham shirt.”

Neville added:

"Against Everton, I was here, and I thought he didn’t look right. But he’s found the balance.

"Him and Sissoko in midfield - both of them have been outstanding in the last two or three weeks.”
