Tottenham Hotspur have one of the youngest squads in the Premier League, with Mauricio Pochettino putting his faith in youth.

Mauricio Pochettino has entrusted the young players in his ranks to guide the club forward, and everyone at Spurs is on a steep learning curve.

The Argentine manager's ease at throwing his players in at the deep end does not concern Lamela, though, and the winger is adamant that the whole squad are trying to progress with every match that they play. 

“Our team is good, very young and we look to improve with every game," he said. 

Tottenham's squad should have no shortage of games to learn from this term, with qualification for the Europa League ensuring that they have a large volume of matches to cope with.

Although some English teams have suffered poor Premier League form as a result of their European commitments, Lamela believes that the competition is important to the Lilywhites. 

“It’s important to get off to a good start in the group against Qarabag,” the 23-year-old added.

“It’s another competition and we need to win every game if we are going to do well. It’s one thing to say that we want to win the trophy but we need to keep winning and keep improving as we work towards this.

“We are playing at home tonight and that helps us – we are happy about playing at White Hart Lane."

Pochettino has told talkSPORT that Lamela is taking in a make or break season at Spurs, but the manager has faith that the former Roma man will come good.

This is now Lamela's third season at White Hart Lane, and he needs to show the quality which made Tottenham pay such a hefty fee to bring him to the club in 2013.
