One annoying thing about Erik Lamela at Tottenham Hotspur

Erik Lamela

The Argentine needs to start using his right foot.

There is no doubt that Erik Lamela is finally adapting to the English game. The Argentine has struggled since arriving at Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 from Roma. He had problems settling in and a persistent back problem. He was also going down to easy and not working hard enough for the team.

Now Lamela is hard-working and certainly stronger on the ball. Add that to what is his magnificent talent and finally Tottenham are getting their money's worth.

However, there is still one massively annoying aspect of Lamela's game that needs to be eradicated.

He only touches the ball with his left-foot.

He had several chances against Anderlecht last night to throw his right foot at the ball and get a shot on goal.

He can do some special things when he improvises on his left-foot - just remember the rabona v Asteras last term. But a player with this natural ability must be able to make good use of that right-peg.

Sometimes it is worth having a go. Mousa Dembele threw his right-foot at a half-volley last night and it sailed into the top corner to give Spurs the win.

If Lamela started using his right-foot more when in the right positions it is almost guaranteed that he would add more goals to his game and endear him more to the Tottenham faithful.

Just swing your leg at it Erik, you never know!
