This time last year we we speculating as to whether Erik Lamela would be sold by Spurs. Instead he knuckled down, made the most of the chance given to him by Mauricio Pochettino and finally proved why Tottenham paid so much money for him.
Lamela is now about to go into his fourth season with the club and it looks like he’s bang on form. The Argentine gave an electrifying performance in the 6-1 thrashing of Inter Milan today and it made Spurs fans very excited indeed. Here’s how they reacted on Twitter.

Wonderful performance from Lamela, who seems to be carrying on where he left off last year. Such a good player these days, one of our best.

Lamela doing brilliantly in that number 10 role. Only pre season but he's been the stand out player of our tour.

Lamela 3 years ago: "My moment will come, and I will make the difference"
This guy is going to be insane this season, so excited

Just seen highlights from the second half. Erik Lamela was different gravy. Always believed he'd flourish and this is only the beginning…
