Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Giovani Lo Celso caught the eye of rival supporters with his display for Jose Mourinho's side.

Tottenham Hotspur's Argentinian midfielder Giovani Lo Celso celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the UEFA Champions League Group B football match between Red Star Belgrade...

Even rival fans think that Tottenham Hotspur have found a gem in Giovani Lo Celso, and have suggested that he is now their very best player.

Lo Celso was brought in by Tottenham in the summer, and he initially made a slow start in North London.

However, the Argentine has grown in importance as the season has progressed and has been Tottenham’s stand out performer over recent weeks.

Lo Celso has shown great ability in possession and a willingness to scrap in central midfield.

 

Tottenham may have been beaten 1-0 to RB Leipzig last night, but Lo Celso did not deserve to be on the losing side.

The 23-year-old playmaker was a constant option for his Tottenham teammates, as he demanded the ball and caused Leipzig all sorts of problems.

And Lo Celso’s display even drew praise from rivals fans, as it was so good.

Tottenham have already made Lo Celso’s move permanent, after activating a clause in his loan deal in January.

The central midfielder will surely start again at the weekend, when Tottenham take on Chelsea in a huge match for their top four hopes.
