It was arguably the best match in a Tottenham shirt so far for Giovani Lo Celso last night, but it feels as if we have been saying that for a few games now.
The Argentine seems to be adapting to the pace of the Premier League after his move from Real Betis and he ran the show from midfield against Norwich City.
The Spurs summer signing, still technically on loan from Betis, lined up in a central partnership with Harry Winks, although he was given the license to roam forward.
Not only was he creative with his passes and deliveries, but the midfielder also worked tirelessly in defence and closing down the opposition.
Speaking about the player after the match, Mourinho was impressed with how he is coping with the move from Spain to England.
However, he added that he does worry about the player getting injured as the club do not have many solutions or replacements.
He said (Football London): “Giovani is improving game-after-game. Today he was fantastic in everything. I think he is adapting very well to the league, he can play in various positions, he gives us lots of quality, vision, passing, he is improving his offensive game, he is improving his intensity.
“The only thing that worries me is the new life of English football of playing and playing and playing and in this case, he is now playing all the time now because we don’t have different solutions. Even today when Lamela was out, no wingers so Giovani to the wing. It’s hard but I think it’s good experience for all of us, a good experience for the family.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
This sounds like a message to Mr Levy to me. Another creative player needed to replace Eriksen I think.
