100% success is two key areas; Erik Lamela shows his worth to Tottenham

Erik Lamela

The Argentine put in an impressive display in the 4-1 win over Manchester City on Saturday.

Tottenham’s 4-1 win over Manchester City on Saturday afternoon is one that is sure to be long remembered by the north London club's fans.

In a highly accomplished performance from Mauricio Pochettino’s side, they saw off Manuel Pellegrini’s team, who had started the season on fire before the loss to West Ham, with consummate ease.

One player who enjoyed a fine afternoon for the side was winger Erik Lamela, who has so far had more bad days than good during his time at White Hart Lane.

The Argentine has been heavily criticised during his Tottenham career but, recently, he has produced some fine displays.

Aside from his goal, Lamela was a constant danger throughout the game, with him enjoying a 100% success rate when it came to attempted assists during the 87 minutes he featured.

Continuing his 100% success rate, dribbling comes next, with him having attempted contests throughout the game, and all of them coming off in his favour.

His touches were similarly impressive, with him having 64 in total but only two of them being unsuccessful, meaning a huge 96% of his touches were a success.

A top performance from Lamela, then, who will be hoping the turning point has finally arrived for him at Tottenham.
