Dean Jones, who discussed how the Tottenham player appears to have adapted well to Postecoglou’s approach, wrote about this on GiveMeSport.
In light of Spurs’ injury concerns, Jones thinks the Argentina midfielder now has the best opportunity of making a comeback into the starting lineup.
Lo Celso arrived at Tottenham in 2019 as a temporary loan player, but he hasn’t been able to fully establish himself there yet.
After a strong preseason campaign in which he scored two goals in three friendlies and did enough to persuade Ange Postecoglou to retain him, it appeared as though this would alter this term.
Unfortunately, the 27-year-old suffered an injury during Spurs’ Carabao Cup loss to Fulham, brutally stopping his progress toward becoming a regular in the starting lineup.
Since then, Lo Celso has made a comeback, starting his second game overall and his first in the Premier League during last weekend’s loss to Aston Villa.
Giovani Lo Celso impresses Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou Jones says he has heard that Postecoglou is pleased with how the Argentine has adjusted to the team ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Manchester City.
“The squad depth is being tested, so if there was a way back for Lo Celso, it would be now,” he wrote.
“He and (Bryan) Gil would have the chance to demonstrate their ability to enter this side and have an effect.
Once more, Postecoglou is searching for individuals who can demonstrate that they can handle the phase Tottenham must navigate.
“They’ve got a really tough time coming up now. We’re already looking at a team that has suffered three defeats.
“You’re looking at a fixture at the weekend that will probably lead to four defeats in a row.
“That’s tough, but Tottenham’s performance level hasn’t dipped off that far.
“From what I’m told, I think that Postecoglou has been pretty impressed by Lo Celso and how he’s adapted.”
It’s good to hear that Lo Celso is impressing Postecoglou. And if any Spurs manager can get him back on track, it’s Postecoglou.
For instance, Yves Bissouma struggled under Antonio Conte, but now he’s back to his best and shining for Spurs. Hopefully that’ll be the case with Lo Celso too.
