Tottenham Hotspur fans took to social media after their 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday evening to react to the performance of summer signing Giovani Lo Celso.
Because of an injury earlier in the campaign, the Spurs supporters haven’t seen as much of the Argentina international as they would have liked, but he made his first start in Serbia, and impressed throughout the 86 minutes he spent on the pitch.
This was exactly the night Tottenham wanted. Not only did Lo Celso impress, but they put in a dominant performance, one which they can build on and take into their Premier League season, one which needs kicking into life sooner rather than later.
As for the creative midfielder, this was an evening where he highlighted everything he can bring to this Spurs side, regularly poking at the Belgrade defence, setting up chances as well as getting into the box looking to score himself.
It was his perseverance which gave Tottenham the lead in the first-half. A crazy spell of action where the ball pinged around the home penalty area with three good chances missed, saw the ball fall to Lo Celso, and the Argentine coolly teed himself up before slotting home and sending Mauricio Pochettino’s men on their way to a much needed victory.
Son-Heung Min added a couple of goals in the second half of the game, before the scoring was rounded off by Christian Eriksen late on, as Spurs picked up the win which puts them in a great position to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League once again.
As far as supporters were concerned, it was all about Lo Celso on social media after the match, with Tottenham supporters all wanting to see even more of the 23-year-old after his impressive full debut.
