Tottenham Hotspur will be without summer signing Giovani Lo Celso until the end of October. The club’s official website has confirmed that Lo Celso will miss several weeks of action with a hip injury.
Lo Celso, who joined from Real Betis this summer, has only played a few minutes for Tottenham this season. Mauricio Pochettino is slowly introducing him to the English game by giving him minutes off the bench.
But the 23-year-old’s progress will be slowed by this injury setback. During the international break, the Argentina international picked up a hip injury in the 0-0 draw with Chile. He was assessed by the Spurs medical team to see how serious this injury is and it is not good news.
Tottenham fans are cursing their luck. The North London club made four signings this summer but they have not been in full flow yet. Jack Clarke went back to Leeds United on loan and Ryan Sessegnon has not been fit enough to feature yet.
Meanwhile, Tanguy Ndombele and Lo Celso have both picked up injuries since the start of the season. Here are some tweets reacting to this news.
Typical spurs no luck with injuries hope he comes back soon fit ready

Honestly though. I know this was on international duty but something seriously has to be wrong with how we care for the well-being of our players. Don’t tell me that it’s a coincidence that everyone appears to be injury prone because that just cannot be the answer.

The end of October? I know this happened on international duty but it does seem like all our players are made of biscuits
