Tottenham Hotspur fans have been lauding Giovani Lo Celso after the Argentine’s performance in the comeback win over Brighton and Hove Albion.
Is Jose Mourinho a busted flush?
After coming on in the 56th minute, the 23-year-old played 20 passes with 17 of them being played forward as he finished with a pass accuracy of 83.3% (via WhoScored). He also attempted the joint-second most crosses (2) of any player in Jose Mourinho’s side.
Fans were left feeling over the moon with the player as one fan lauded him as the ‘greatest Argentian’.
