Giovani Lo Celso injury adds to Tottenham’s problems vs Man United while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no such issues


Giovani Lo Celso injury adds to Tottenham’s problems vs Man United

Jose Mourinho faced the press on Thursday ahead of Tottenham’s first game back in the Premier League on Friday night against Manchester United.

The Special One has confirmed that Argentine midfielder Giovani Lo Celso is an injury doubt for the Man United game.

Lo Celso had injury issues before the lockdown, and it seems like he’s not managed to fully recover.

That said, Mourinho did indicate that Lo Celso would be able to play some part of the match against the Red Devils.

 

Other Spurs issues vs Man United

Dele Alli will serve a one-match suspension on Friday night following a distasteful video which he posted on SnapChat several months ago.

Tottenham could also be without Eric Dier for the United match, although its unclear what’s going on there.

Dier could be banned with threatening behaviour after he confronted a supporter in the stands in an FA Cup tie against Norwich City in March.

Mourinho expressed his dissatisfaction with the FA’s slowness in reaching a decision on this issue, while he also defended Dier against the charges.

 

What else did Mourinho say about his Tottenham XI?

Mourinho confirmed that defender Japhet Tanganga is out of contention with a back stress fracture.

Jan Vertonghen could be selected, however the Belgian still hasn’t agreed a contract extension to stay at the club until the end of the season.

It’s also been confirmed that Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Moussa Sissoko will start on Friday.

 

Man United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no such issues

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also faced the press today, and he reported that man United only have a couple of injury concerns to Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe.

Solskjaer also confirmed that Angel Gomes has an offer on the table for a new deal. He said:

We have offered Angel a deal. From what I understand it is not too far away but if not, we will wish him all the best.
