Tottenham fans loved Lamela’s cameo against Liverpool

Yesterday was a tough day for all associated with Tottenham Hotspur. It would be a compliment to call the performance lacklustre and at times it could have been a cricket score with Liverpool piling in with attack after attack on Michel Vorm’s goal. However, if there was one impressive performer for Mauricio Pochettino’s side it was Erik Lamela.

Erik Lamela came off the bench yesterday to replace Mousa Dembele around the hour mark and it was a substitution that should have happened at half-time. Whilst Lamela wasn’t able to improve his side’s defending, with a number of shocking passes around the defence which left them vulnerable time after time, on the odd occasions that Spurs got the ball out of their own half it was Lamela who looked the brightest.

Bar Lucas Moura’s effort which hit the post just before Roberto Firmino’s goal, Lamela was the only figure in white who managed to threaten the Liverpool goal and when he found the net from a tight angle in the dying minutes it gave the Lilywhites a lifeline, albeit a slim one. Pochettino will be having some real selection headaches ahead of Inter Milan on Tuesday but Lamela might just have played his way into the team, especially seeing as Dele Alli is likely to still be out.

The fans are loving Lamela so far this season and they’ll be keen to see more from him on Tuesday.
