Giovani Lo Celso out for Tottenham until end of October

Giovani Lo Celso has been ruled out for around six to eight weeks with a hip injury

Tottenham have confirmed that midfielder Giovani Lo Celso will be out until "towards the end of October" with a hip injury.

Lo Celso, who signed for Spurs from Real Betis in a £55m move, picked up the injury while on international duty with Argentina.

He originally played down the knock, saying it was "not something to worry about", but his club have now confrmed that he will be out for around six to eight weeks.

The 27-year-old will miss league games against Crystal Palace, Leicester, Southampton, Brighton and Watford, with Mauricio Pochettino hoping he will be back for their crucial clash against Liverpool on October 27.

He will also be out of their Champions League group games against Olympiacos, Bayern Munich and, potentially, Red Star Belgrade.
