Reacting to Giovani Lo Celso’s impressive performance in Argentina’s win over Uruguay, some Spurs fans on social media have questioned why the midfielder is not able to replicate similar performances at club level.

Since signing for Spurs from Real Betis in the summer of 2019, Lo Celso has shown glimpses of his quality but has not been able to deliver consistently for the North London club.

While the 24-year-old has not had an easy time with injuries, he has not set the world alight when opportunities have come his way either.

In stark contrast, the midfielder has had much more success with his national side, playing a valued part in Argentina’s Copa America success over the summer.

Lo Celso was once again on top form for La Albiceleste on Sunday as they overcame Uruguay 3-0 in the World Cup qualifiers.

The Tottenham man was the star of the show, setting up two of the home side’s three goals.

Reacting to his display, some Spurs fans have questioned whether there are issues with the way in which Lo Celso is being used by Tottenham, thus preventing him from replicating his form for Argentina.

I do agree with those who say that Lo Celso’s best position is the number ten role that allows the midfielder some freedom to roam.

However, both Alli and Ndombele are also seemingly at their best in the same position and so it does appear like the three players could end up scrapping for one spot in the starting eleven this season.
