How Spurs could line up against Sheff Utd with Lo Celso set to be rested after brilliant display vs Red Star Belgrade.

GIOVANI LO CELSO is expected to return to Tottenham's bench at the weekend as Mauricio Pochettino rotates his squad.

The £55million Argentine, 23, was in sparkling form as he made his full debut against Red Star Belgrade - scoring in the 4-0 rout.

But Pochettino is afraid of overworking his players as surprise package Sheffield Wednesday travel to Spurs tomorrow.

He said: “I need to assess tomorrow morning, it is a short time to recover.

“Some players suffer small issues and we have three games in six days. I still need to decide the team for tomorrow.”

Christian Eriksen came off the bench to score the fourth against Red Star but his strike cannot gloss over a poor season overall from the wantaway ace.

Speaking after the Champions League triumph, Lo Celso claimed he is finally hitting his groove after injury hampered the start of his Spurs career.

He said: “I have been waiting a lot after I got injured, but I am enjoying this moment and would like to thank my team-mates and the staff.

“I am starting to adapt well. I had a small problem with the injury with the national team, but I am back and more importantly I now feel well and have completed my first game for the club.”

Fans are keen to see Lo Celso given another chance to impress but Eriksen is likely to join two-goal Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Dele Alli in attack.

Harry Winks could also return, with Toby Alderweireld - who has played every minute in the league - coming back into the defence.

But Hugo Lloris, Erik Lamela and Jan Vertonghen have been ruled out.
