'Not even a debate': Tottenham fans want Lo Celso to start against Villa
Tottenham take on Aston Villa today in the Premier League and some of their fans have been calling for midfielder, Giovani Lo Celso, to start in the number ten role.
The Argentinian midfielder played well in a similar role in the midweek win over Mura in the Europa Conference League. Lo Celso has often been deployed deeper, but excelled when put further forward.
Manager Nuno Santo must decide today whether he goes back to the 4-2-3-1 formation, or goes with three at the back. And if Santo does opt for the four at the back, then who plays in the number ten role is vitally important.
Tottenham fans, then, have been discussing who in their squad should be given the nod in that role today. Lo Celso is one of the options, along with youngster Bryan Gil, and the out of form Dele Alli. Tanguy Ndombele is also in the mix.
However, Spurs fans on Twitter believe that Lo Celso is the man for the job and they made their feelings known.
Celso,, not even a debate.

Lo celso. Ndombele has done nothing to justify inclusion over him,even if he has more natural talent. Unfortunately you can’t make the case for dele atm which is a shame as he’s not had the chance to play 10 much.
Lo celso was underrated this midweek. He and skipp deserve a place

Gotta be GLC as a 10 with Højbjerg and Skipp behind him. Son, Kane and Moura as a front 3. IMO thats our most balanced front 6

Lo Celso needs that and then put Gil and Son on either side with Kane up top, then bring on Tanguy later

GLC got to reward a performance at this moment of decline.

GLC as I think he will press the opposition better when we haven’t got the ball, helping us to break more quickly and bring in the front three.

Gio, he rarely gets that spot. But that’s where he’ll excel the most.
