Alasdair Gold has been speaking on the latest edition of his YouTube show about all things relating to Tottenham Hotspur.

A nice easy one to start off with, who is Tottenham's signing?

One of the topics that the Football.london reporter spent a bit of time on was Giovani Lo Celso and his gradual return to fitness.

The Argentinian has missed 19 games for Spurs with a hamstring injury but appears to be closing in on a return to first-team action.

Gold said: “He’s back in training. They have been protecting him in training at Hotspur Way, so he’s not really in a position where he’s going to get injured.

“Until he’s fully training without any of the restrictions, he can’t really play matches.

seems to be indicating more next week a potential coming back, but you never know.

“Maybe he looks and puts him on the bench for [Crystal] Palace or, depending on how his week goes, even the game – I just wonder if that comes a bit early – but he will be involved.”

Are you looking forward to having Lo Celso back?

Yes, he will make a difference

No, he isn't that good

TIF Thoughts on Lo Celso’s return…

Since Lo Celso has been out of the team, Spurs have only won four league matches, while when they had him in the side, they won six out of 11.

So, judging by that, you could say they have missed him; however, his average league rating of 6.56/10 (as per WhoScored) with one goal and one assist suggests that he has only performed averagely this season.

Despite this, Jose Mourinho is a big fan of Lo Celso, and we feel that with him back in the squad, Spurs will have more options as they look to push on up the league.

If Lo Celso could replicate his Europa League form in the Premier League, then his return could really help Spurs as they look to close the gap to the top four.
