Giovani Lo Celso named in latest Argentina squad despite missing out for Tottenham vs Man United

Man United vs Tottenham

An extremely entertaining clash between Manchester United and Tottenham was played out a short time ago.

Spurs, arguably, headed into the tie in better form. But with Jose Mourinho’s side having already played twice this week, United likely fancied their chances.

However, thanks to some simply diabolical defending from numerous United players, Spurs were able to come away with a staggering 6-1 victory.

The Lilywhites were already 4-1 come half time, with Aurier adding a 5th shortly into the second 45 before Kane made it 6-1 78 minutes in.

Said victory moved Spurs up to 5th in the Premier League table as we head into the international break – two points off Arsenal.

As for United, they are currently languishing down in 16th spot.

Lo Celso misses out vs Man United

As is customary, both outfits revealed their starting line-ups an hour prior to kick-off on Sunday.

United, baring a change at centre-back, started with what is generally viewed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s best eleven.

Tottenham, on the other hand, made a number of changes from their last league outing.

Perhaps the most noticeable omission from both the starting eleven and matchday squad was Giovani Lo Celso.

The Argentine has been one of the Lilywhite’s standout stars this term, so to not even have him on the bench for such a big game did seem a bit odd.

Mourinho would not provide an explanation for the midfielder’s complete omission from the matchday squad on Sunday, but you would assume there was some sort of fitness issue.

Despite this, Lo Celso has, on Sunday evening, been called up for Argentina’s latest set of fixtures taking place next week:
