The Argentine scored the equaliser against Everton yesterday.
Tottenham's Erik Lamela scores their first goal
After initially being overrun early on Spurs built their way into the game and in the end they were unlucky not to come away with a win.
Tottenham's Erik Lamela celebrates scoring their first goal with Harry Kane
The fact they earned a point was courtesy of an excellent headed goal from Argentine Erik Lamela – who had a brilliant game.
His goal continued his fine form from pre-season and many are tipping him to be Spurs’ star player in 2016-17.
He showed glimpses of his ability on a more regular basis last season but has started this campaign with real aplomb.
His first two seasons at the club were certainly less than impressive.
The Argentine struggled to settle in London and with a niggling back injury.
But Spurs have stuck by the Argentine, despite numerous opportunities to flog him, and they are now looking like reaping the rewards of their faith in the club record signing’s undoubted ability.
Here is some of the best reaction on Twitter to Lamela’s excellent performance for Spurs…
