Tottenham fans endorse Lo Celso as their new number 10
Tottenham fans want to see Lo Celso feature in a key new role.
So far this season Nuno Espirito Santo has had mixed results using a 4-3-3 system.
He kicked off with three wins before then falling to three straight losses.
After the third of those loses, to Arsenal no less, Nuno opted to use a 4-2-3-1 system vs Aston Villa.
It looks like this system will be the one used going forward and it begs a few questions.
One of those questions is who will be the Lilywhites’ man to fill the #10 role.
As far as the fans are concerned it simply has to be Giovani Lo Celso.
Tottenham fans want to see Lo Celso feature in a key new role
The Argentine is a sublime player who just hasn’t been able to lockdown one position at the club.
In eight games in all competitions this season the 25-year-old has already played in five different roles (Transfermarkt).
However, the supporters emphatically want to see the Argentine given a run of games as the central attacking midfielder.
With Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son both world class players who score for fun, Lo Celso could become a prime creator.
The fans believe he can do it and if it allows Tanguy Ndombele to pick the ball up deeper then it’s a win-win.
Previously the Frenchman has been used in the 10 role, but he’s much more influential when he can collect the ball deep.
Utilising the best of both Lo Celso and Ndombele is crucial.
This could be key in Nuno unlocking the best of this Tottenham side.
We’ll have to wait until Sunday to see it tested as that’s when Spurs next play.
A trip to the now jubilant Newcastle post-takeover won’t be easy, but it’s certainly an opportunity to test a new midfield.
What do the fans think?
It’ll be lo celso, Ndombele holds onto the ball too long for a cam he’s better playing deeper— Sebastian (@THFCBash) October 11, 2021
Lo Celso deserves it, more consistent and has a much better attitude.— Tom Woodley-Marshall (@Woods2297) October 11, 2021
Always felt that Gio in 10, Ndombele in 6/8 makes sense.. but his fitness is a stumbling block— Jason Ong (@JasonCOYS) October 11, 2021
Give Gio the spot and hope he produces. Sell Tanguy. If Gio can’t do it, put Lucas there and Gil at RW to create— When We Were THFC (@AryehLender) October 11, 2021
It’s literally not even a race…. gio is so far in front of tanguy it’s not funny. Dele and tanguy are pretty much the same, got the potential but don’t use it and give away possession way too much— Jedd Timbs (@TeddJimbs) October 11, 2021
Give it to Gio and ship Tanguy out…..— Andrew Lucas (@andrewlucas44) October 11, 2021
