Nuno Espirito Santo calls it the ‘home factor’, and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg explained how the relationship between players and fans helped take the team over the line against Villa on Sunday.

The Viking was on target in this key Premier League victory, marauding forward from halfway before exchanging passes with Heung-Min Son and calmly placing a 20-yarder into the corner in the first half.

More importantly, the team responded to Villa’s equaliser in the second half, restoring our lead within three minutes as Sonny again turned provider, putting on the burners before squaring for Matt Targett to slide into his own net as Lucas Moura waited to pounce. We had chances after that as well, and deserved to halt a run of three defeats in the Premier League.

We stood up and I’m happy we got the win. We needed that. Now we need to go forward, to push forward

“It was an important win, an acceptable performance and nice to feel some good energy in terms of being able to bring the crowd with us, we really felt that,” reflected Pierre, who has still hasn’t missed a minute of Premier League action for us since switching from Southampton in August, 2020.

“We had to show it. We had to show how much we care and how much we want it, and I think in a big part of it today we showed that.

“I was very pleased with the way we responded to 1-1. We went forward, played out from the back... Sonny today, he did brilliantly with two assists and running behind them. He did really well, created two fantastic goals for us.

“In the past weeks the frustration has been growing. But when you come into this stadium, these surroundings, this arena and you step in and how the crowd responds, it’s impossible not to feel ready for the fight. We stood up and I’m happy we got the win. We needed that. Now we need to go forward, to push forward.”
