Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t know whether club newcomers Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon will be able for the matches after the international break.
Lo Celso picked up a hip injury during the international break and it was expected that he would be out till November.
Meanwhile, Sessegnon was sidelined because of a hamstring injury sustained when playing in England U21s this summer.
As reported earlier, both players at the final stage of their treatment and could be ready for the Watford match to be played after the international break.
“I don’t know. To be honest, I don’t know because they still haven’t integrated with the group again yet and came from a long period of not playing. We need to be careful. It’s a bit unlucky because as new signings they can provide new energy but we cannot use them from the beginning. Lucky that Tanguy was a small problem and could recover quickly. In the end it’s a little bit unlucky. This season and that situation when you don’t have luck when you sign a player. You need to wait and wait and wait. But time, the team needs time.” Pochettino sais (via Football London)
“Like I told you in the past, we started late and started to create that dynamic to be strong and get that result you want. To show the quality you want you need that dynamic you normally have in pre-season but for different reasons we cannot start there and start late. Now we are later in building that situation that is going to help us get the results we want and expect and deserve for our quality.” Argentine added.
Spurs will face Brighton & Hove Albion at AMEX Stadium for the opening match of match-day #8.
