Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg signed for Southampton from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2016 with great expectations on his shoulders.
However, it hasn't always been easy for the Dane who fell down the pecking order at St Mary's during Claude Puel's reign last season. It hasn't been any better under Mauricio Pellegrino and the defensive midfielder has played just six minutes of Premier League football against Brighton when he came on as a sub. In Southampton's current system, Pellegrino has deployed Oriol Romeu alongside Mario Lemina screening the defence but with the latter injured and the former suspended for one game after picking up a yellow card, it seems that Hojbjerg may finally get a chance to shine alongside Steven Davis. Even if Lemina does return in GW13, Hojbjerg may still play as Davis' abilities are needed further forward to aid the Saints' attacking which is struggling for goals. Wed, Nov 22, 2017 11:49:00 AM
