Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg Tottenham 2020-21

Tottenham will travel to Liverpool this week with a three-point haul firmly in mind, saysPierre-Emile Hojbjerg, addingthat their surprise stalemate with Crystal Palace will fuel their ambition at Anfield.

The sides are locked together on 25 points at the summit, one ahead of third-place Leicester City, with Tottenham barely ahead thanks to a superior goal difference.

Both outfits missed the opportunity to pull clear of the other at the weekend as they both succumbed to shock draws in Sunday’s top-flight matches.

Tottenham saw their advantage nullifiedby Jeffery Schlupp late on against a gutsy Palace side, while Liverpool were forced to come from behind against relegation-threatened Fulham for a point.

Yet Denmark internationalHojbjerg, who joined the club in August from Southampton, says that the frustrations of a spurned chance will only drive them on to beat their title rivals on their own turf.

“If you could see the dressing room after the game, you would seea feeling of a bit of disappointment, which is good,”the 25-year-oldtold the club’s official website.

“It shows we are competing, and we want to compete and win every game. I think it’s a good sign that we’re not happy with a 1-1 draw here.

“We let the small details, the small moments, go into their hands. You know, sometimes small things together create one big thing. Maybe that happened.

“Palace have a physical presence around the box, they have good individual players and they are not easy to play against.

“We’re in a good moment and we have to keep going. We can’t let it slip away or get out of balance. We look forward to Wednesday against Liverpool, then Sunday against Leicester and the game after that.
