The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern were pretty pleased with their side’s performance against Newport County on Wednesday. Tottenham weren’t expected to require two sets of 90 minutes to put their opponents away, but after a shaky first game, there wasn’t any doubting their quality in the latter fixture.
They comfortably dismantled Newport with a comfortable 2-0 win, with a number of Mauricio Pochettino’s men impressing on the night.
There were a few standout performances, but Erik Lamela is the player that is earning most of the plaudits after the game. He hasn’t played much football in recent weeks, particularly from the start, and given that his last full game came in the last round of the cup, the Argentine was certainly under pressure to impress.
Fortunately for him, he did exactly that, with a very strong performance rewarded with a goal – his first in quite some time.
Following the game, Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to discuss the performance, and it’s fair to say that most were impressed. They’re clearly expecting more from him over the coming weeks, but for now, they think that the Lamela of old is – finally – back.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
