With the international fixtures done and dusted, Premier League action is once again set to return this weekend, with Tottenham taking on Crystal Palace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.

The international break provided several injured players the chance to work on their fitness, with the club confirming yesterday that the likes of Eric Dier, Tanguy Ndombele, Kyle Walker-Peters, and Ryan Sessegnon have all returned to first-team training.

However, there was an extremely disappointing update about Giovani Lo Celso as the club confirmed that he will be out until the end of October due to a hip injury he picked up on international duty with Argentina.

The 23-year-old picked up a knock against Chile which saw him being withdrawn from the game early in the second half.

The former Real Betis man, who came to Spurs with high expectations in the summer, is yet to start a game for the club and it looks like he will have to wait for at least a couple more months to do so.

Pochettino admitted his disappointment at Lo Celso’s injury and suggested that it will now take him more time to get accustomed to a new way of playing (Football.London).

Some Spurs fans on social media were absolutely fuming at the fact that the midfielder picked up the injury playing in a meaningless friendly.

While Lo Celso’s injury is no doubt a major blow for the side, the one saving grace is the fact that it is an area where Spurs are well stocked. Hopefully, the likes of Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli can step up over the next two months and play to the level we know they can.
