Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Erik Lamela's display against Burnley

Gareth Bale

Tottenham fans compared Erik Lamela to Gareth Bale after he starred against Burnley.

Tottenham made it three wins in a week after a narrow 2-1 victory over Burnley at White Hart Lane this afternoon.

Harry Kane gave Tottenham the lead before Ashley Barnes rifled home a superb equaliser for the Clarets, only for Erik Lamela to curl home a beauty of a shot from long range to take Spurs to sixth place, just four points off the top four.

One of the standout performers was Argentine international winger Lamela, who scored his first Premier League goal for the club - almost 18 months after joining the club from Roma.

Lamela, 22, was signed to be Gareth Bale's replacement, but has so far failed to make an impact in North London, an opinion backed up by today's goal being his first in the league.

Yet today, Lamela tormented the Burnley defence, and his goal was eerily reminiscent of one Bale would've scored during his time at White Hart Lane.

Fans noted the similarity between the two players today, taking to Twitter to voice their delight with Lamela's display, suggesting that he is now getting better and better under Mauricio Pochettino.

Here are some of the reactions from Spurs fans on Twitter to Lamela's performance today.
