Tottenham Hotspur's new signings both have brilliant potential.

Giovani Lo Celso came off the bench for Tottenham Hotspur to top off a successful night against Red Star Belgrade.

His appearance was the icing on the cake for a successful night where everything came together for Spurs.

 

It was another new signing who really caught the eye, new signing Tanguy Ndombele.

The Frenchman looked like the record signing Spurs hoped for when they signed him. He set up Tottenham's third goal with a driving midfield run, before laying the ball off for Heung-Min Son to do the rest.

Ndombele had two assists in total, touching the ball 78 times, and winning three tackles in a complete midfield performance.

Lo Celso came on for the final 12 minutes, making 14 passes in a composed but low key display.

What was remarkable was how comfortable he looked after replacing Dele Alli, and Tottenham fans are excited about the potential Ndombele and Lo Celso partnership.

The way they linked up during their short time on the pitch together caught the eye.

 

Tottenham might not want to throw Lo Celso straight into a start at Anfield at the weekend, but if they did, he would probably be up to the task.

He and Ndombele are the future for Tottenham, and that's bad news for the rest of their talented midfielders who must compete for the remaining starting spot.

Ndombele stepping up with a performance like this was badly needed, and if he plays like he did last night regularly, then he will help Lo Celso settle in a lot quicker.
