Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso has told the Independent that he feels ‘well’ now, after making his full debut for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in midweek.

Lo Celso has made a slow start at Tottenham after joining in the summer, due to injury.

The Argentine international has barely featured since joining, but appears to be back to full fitness now.

Lo Celso started for Tottenham on Wednesday in their Champions League match against Red Star Belgrade, and the playmaker impressed as Spurs picked up a 4-0 win.

 

Lo Celso fired Tottenham in front from close range, as Pochettino’s men won comfortably in Serbia.

And Lo Celso claims that he is now feeling very good at Spurs.

“I have been waiting a lot after I got injured, but I am enjoying this moment and would like to thank my team-mates and the staff,” he said.

“I am starting to adapt well. I had a small problem with the injury with the national team, but I am back and more importantly I now feel well and have completed my first game for the club.”

Lo Celso could be in with a chance of starting for Spurs on Saturday now, although Pochettino has admitted that he will need to be assessed.

With Christian Eriksen struggling there is a real chance for Lo Celso to stake his claim to become Tottenham’s key playmaker over the coming weeks.

Spurs’s next match comes against Sheffield United, who have began the campaign well.
