Fresh Tottenham injury blow

Ahead of Friday’s match, Ange Postecoglou has confirmed Tottenham will be without Giovani Lo Celso for the trip to Nottingham Forest.

The Argentine joins a lengthy injury list at Spurs after suffering a ‘slight injury’ in training, but the manager does not believe the damage is significant.

Speaking to the club’s official media channels ahead of Friday’s game at the City Ground, Postecoglou said: “We’ve got quite a significant absence with eight on the injury table.

“Unfortunately, Gio Lo Celso will miss this week. Hopefully it’s nothing too serious but, in terms of last week, we are one more down but the rest of the guys are OK.

Asked for more information on Lo Celso’s injury, the manager replied: “A slight training injury, which we are still trying to work out but it’s nothing serious.”

Elsewhere, James Maddison and Micky van de Ven hope to be back in contention for selection in January and Postecoglou is pleased by their progress: “They are going OK. They are going through their rehab with Bentancur and Solomon and Phillips and all these other guys, so are cracking on.”
