Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has singled out Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for a bit of criticism after losing tonight.

Spurs went down 3-0 away to Manchester City.

In doing so, Tottenham missed the chance to move one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool, who have played one game more.

City went into the game with a 15-match winning streak and really, Jose Mourinho’s side were always going to be second best.

That being said, the North Londoners didn’t help themselves and a sloppy foul from the Denmark international – who joined for £15 million in the summer – led to Rodri firing City ahead from the penalty spot in the first half.

Here’s what the legendary Arsenal manager said to BeIN Sport: “Hojbjerg, here, there’s no danger. He doesn’t control himself and he gives away a penalty that wasn’t needed at all.”

You won’t find many Tottenham fans criticising Hojbjerg this season because he’s probably been the Lilywhites’ best signing of last summer.

But Wenger is right – he wasn’t completely concentrating because a focused Hojbjerg probably doesn’t concede the same foul.

Mourinho’s side are still eighth and although they definitely have a shot at reaching the Champions League next season, they absolutely must tighten things up at the back.
