Arsenal news LIVE: Arteta wins manager of the month, QPR friendly victory, Watkins and Calvert-Lewin EXCLUSIVE


Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg admits life at Tottenham these days is not much fun.

The Danish anchorman is one of the few Spurs stars who can hold his high after their rollercoaster start.

The North Londoners were top of the table after winning each of their opening three Premier League matches 1-0 under new boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

But defeats – in which they conceded three goals – at Crystal Palace, at home to Chelsea and in the North London derby at Arsenal, put Nuno under fire.

Sunday’s 2-1 home win over Aston Villa, has slightly relieved the pressure on the Portuguese gaffer.

But Hojbjerg hinted the problems in N17 run deeper when he told reporters in his native Denmark: “It was important to get back on the right keel after conceding nine goals in three games.

“It was 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 it now, it may well be ok.”
