Yesterday saw Tottenham Hotspur travel to West Ham and come away with all three points and a clean sheet. In truth, it wasn’t the most entertaining game, but Erik Lamela’s deft header just before half-time gave the Lilywhites all three points. After the game, whilst doing his post-match interview, Lamela was interrupted by Mousa Dembele and the Belgian was waxing lyrical over his teammate.

When crashing Lamela’s interview, Dembele had only ne thing that he wanted to say and that was just how good Lamela is. The interviewer asked the Belgian about Lamela, stating that the versatile attacker has bagged himself an incredible five goals in his last seven games, to which Dembele replied that he’s unbelievable. It’s clear that the Tottenham players see Lamela’s ability and now that he’s showing it the fans are in for a treat.
The majority of Tottenham fans absolutely love both Lamela and Dembele and after seeing them both in the interview they want to see more of the duo. Whilst Lamela was the star of the show yesterday, Dembele played a lesser role. After picking up a knock the midfielder is on his way back to fitness and had to settle for a spot on the bench yesterday, however, he did come on with 15 minutes to play to help see out the game.

Erik acting all bashful is exactly how I’d react at being talked up by the Big Man!

Mousa is so right it was always obvious the skills Coco had but I think it’s only now he is really using them to reach his full potential
