Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has suggested that Tottenham’s poor run of form in September was “absolutely unacceptable” after three straight Premier League defeats.
Spurs started the season well, winning first three Premier League matches. However, the next three games saw them losing points from losses until 2-1 win over Aston Villa right before the international break.
And while on international duty with Denmark, Hojbjerg has opened up on Tottenham’s recent run and the importance of beating Villa.
“Of course it meant a lot,” Spurs midfielder admitted, as reported by Tipsbladet via Sport Witness.
“It was important to get back on the right keel after conceding nine goals in three games.
“It is absolutely unacceptable, especially when you only score one goal yourself. It was not fun to be a part of.
“Even when we won three matches, we were well aware that we did not do things perfectly and were still in a process.
“Now, we luckily got a victory over Aston Villa, so overall it looks OK after seven games. We are four points behind first, so if we stick to now, it may well be OK.”
After Denmark’s upcoming games against Moldova and Austria, Hojbjerg will return to Hotspur Way as Spurs begin their preparations ahead of their league fixture away at Newcastle United.
