Mauricio Pochettino is not happy with Giovani Lo Celso's inclusion in Argentina's latest squad.

Lo Celso, a deadline-day signing from Real Betis, picked up a hip injury while on international duty in September and has only made two substitute appearances for Spurs since.

That has not stopped Argentina boss Lionel Scaloni calling him into his squad for friendlies against Brazil and Uruguay later this month.

"In general, always the manager you want your players at home," he said. "For him it's going to be tough, because when he's nearly fit again to start to play he needs to go away.

"Changing the dynamics of training sessions, some wrong situations can happen. Being honest, I am not happy. But I accept it .

Spurs will check on Jan Vertonghen's hamstring injury, but Erik Lamela (thigh), Hugo Lloris (elbow) and Danny Rose (suspended) are out.
