‘I’d be surprised’: Journalist expects 23-year-old to be named in Spurs squad for City

Tottenham Hotspur will be facing one of their biggest tests of the season – if not the biggest of all – in the clash with champions Manchester City this weekend.

The titanic clash between the two title contenders comes only a few months after they faced off last season in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Mauricio Pochettino did not have his full squad available last Saturday as Spurs found a way to shrugg off a stern test from a newly-promoted Aston Villa side to win 3-1.

The Tottenham faithful will be hoping more key stars are deemed fit for the battle with Man City this time.

Thus, Football.London journalist, Alasdair Gold, claims that he would be surprised if Lo Celso is not on the bench for the match.

The 23-year-old playmaker is still waiting to make his first appearance in a Tottenham shirt after completing his move to the club on transfer deadline day last week.
