Tottenham borrow £175m to ease coronavirus impact

Giovanni Lo Celso injury blow

Tottenham have been dealt a major injury blow and Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Giovanni lo Celso will be ruled out until the new year.

The Argentine midfielder is set to miss the Christmas period and it will be interesting to see how the Londoners cope without him.

Bale, Alli and Vinicius concerns

The midfielder has done well to improve the team’ creatively and the team will have to depend on the likes of Dele Alli to fill his void now.

The 24-year-old Tottenham midfielder has fallen down the pecking order at the club and he was recently criticised by Jose Mourinho for his performance against Stoke City in the Carabao Cup.

Alli was responsible for Stoke city’s equaliser and Jose Mourinho expects the midfielder to improve his team instead of creating problems for his own team.

Meanwhile the Tottenham manager has revealed that Gareth Bale has a slight injury issue and that is why he was substituted at half time against Stoke City.

The Welshman managed to score in the first half but he did not come out with the team in the second half and there were speculations that it could be a tactical substitution.

The Welshman is yet to recapture his best form since his return to the Premier League and he has played just 11 days for Tottenham this season, failing to complete the game on every occasion.

Mourinho will be expecting more from the Welshman in terms of fitness and it will be interesting to see if he can step up his game in the coming months.

Meanwhile, summer signing Carlos Vinicius is being starved of game time at Tottenham and it will be interesting to see if he can hold down a regular starting berth next year.

He was always expected to be a backup for Harry Kane but the fact that Jose Mourinho chose to snub him in the Cup game during the midweek will be concerning for the player.
