Antonio Conte provides injury update on Giovani Lo Celso as Tottenham Hotspur prepare to face Southampton

Antonio Conte has provided an injury update on Giovani Lo Celso as Tottenham Hotspur prepare to face Southampton in Premier League. The Argentine had just returned from a setback he suffered during the international break.

Injuries have always followed the midfielder since his transfer from Real Betis in 2019. That has also contributed to his failure to recapture the form he has shown in Spain. This latest setback would be another one to add to that list that has been frustrating to the fans.

Speaking in the pre-match presser (h/t Football.London), Conte revealed that Lo Celso has suffered a calf injury during the post-match training session at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It was after their win against West Ham United in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals. However, he added that it is not serious, and the club’s stance was just a precaution.

Antonio Conte revealed injury concerns regarding Lo Celso.

“It is not a serious injury, after the game against West Ham the players that didn’t play had a little training and in this training, he had a bit of fatigue in his calf but only for precaution, we decided to wait, especially in this situation it is important to listen to the player. When you have a problem in your calf only the player can give you the right situation.”

Frustrating but right decision

A relapse or worsening the situation is the last thing we need currently. While it is annoying how this has happened time and time again, it is ultimately the right decision to leave the Tottenham ace out for now.

What makes it even worse is how the Spurs star would need more time to get accustomed to the ideas of the Italian boss due to being on the sidelines. The former had shown some promise against Everton under the coach, but this would further extend the time required to get back into the team.

Fortunately, we have enough depth in our midfield, and the fringe players have put up solid performances recently. That would help us in overcoming this situation as we gear up to face the Saints tomorrow. However, we would want the Argentine star back in contention as soon as possible to tackle the congested fixture list.

It remains to be seen when the Tottenham midfielder would return to the squad and be fully fit for selection. We would need him ready at the earliest, especially when there are not many fixtures left between today and the Carabao Cup semi-finals against Chelsea.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
