Tottenham Hotspur fans have only had a fleeting glimpse of their new playmaker so far this season after Giovani Lo Celso joined on loan from Real Betis.
The Argentine midfielder took a few weeks to bed into the squad before making his Premier League debut and he went on the feature in three games as a substitute.
However, before Lo Celso was gifted his first start and full debut in a Lilywhite shirt, he picked up a hip injury during a friendly whilst on duty for Argentina.
Since then, Lo Celso has not been seen in a matchday squad, although he did recently return to training.
Spurs may have dropped points this weekend to Watford, but there was one positive to take as Lo Celso posted an image of himself on his Instagram story with a couple of emojis that appeared to imply that he hopes to be back as soon as possible.
Some Spurs fans reacted to this social media message:
i hope he comes to save our season its looking bleak honestly he has to be ready for tuesday atleast!!!
