Southampton fans impressed by Hojbjerg display against Arsenal

Mauricio Pellegrino has struggled to convince the entire Southampton following that he is the right man to lead the club.

So far this season, the Saints have picked up just four wins in the Premier League and they currently reside 11th in the table, five points from safety after 16 games.

Only one victory has been recorded in the club’s last seven top-flight outings, but performances have improved.

The team almost restricted Manchester City to a 1-1 draw before Raheem Sterling nabbed a winner in the sixth minute of injury time.

In the following game, Pellegrino’s men came from behind to secure a draw with Bournemouth and at the weekend, the team took a point off Arsenal.

There may have been a tinge of disappointment that the Saints did not come away with a victory on Sunday at St Mary’s following Charlie Austin’s early opener.

The coastal club were on course for a win until Olivier Giroud grabbed an equaliser with two minutes of normal time remaining.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has impressed in recent games, and he did so again at the weekend.

The midfielder has made just four Premier League appearances this season and the fans are hoping that he will feature much more from now on.
