Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to extend their unbeaten Premier League run when they face London rivals Chelsea on Monday.

The Lilywhites will host the Blues, who have struggled so far this season.

Ange Postecoglou’s side currently top the Premier League table with 26 points from 10 games, including points from fixtures against Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal.

On the other hand, Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea side currently sit in 11th having only accumulated 12 points.

Despite both teams coming into the match in differing form, the London derby is still anticipated to be a close affair as Pochettino returns to his former club for the first time.

The North London outfit’s midfield have played a crucial role in their impeccable start to the season.

A familiar midfield three of James Maddison, Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma has helped the team dictate the tempo of the game, help retain possession and create attacking opportunities.

However, some players have struggled to get any first-team action; now, Spurs are considering offers for one of their central players.

Lo Celso has only featured in three games for Spurs this season

According to Football Insider, Tottenham are ready to listen to offers for Giovani Lo Celso.

The report claims that the Lilywhites are looking for a figure of around £15m-20m for the fringe player.

Lo Celso, 27, has made 87 appearances since joining the club, initially on loan, from Real Betis in 2019.

The Argentinian has struggled for regular first-team game time this season due to the superb form of Maddison, who joined from Leicester City over the summer.

The midfielder spent most of the last two seasons on loan at Spanish side Villarreal, but Postecoglou decided to keep him this season to provide some midfield depth.

Lo Celso’s only start of the season so far came during a Carabao Cup defeat against Fulham, before he was brought off for young striker Dane Scarlett in the 46th minute.

The Argentinian has also featured off the bench in two Premier League games this season.
