Tottenham's Erik Lamela has his penalty saved

Tottenham Hotspur's Erik Lamela is set to be out until October with a hip injury.

Erik Lamela appears to be losing support from Tottenham Hotspur fans, as his injury problems persist.

Lamela is set to miss the start of next season (Daily Mirror), with his hip problems still proving to be problematic.

The Argentine winger has been out since October 2016 with injury, and has undergone surgery to try and correct the problem.

Spurs have set numerous return dates for Lamela, but the 25-year-old has suffered set-back after set-back.

And Tottenham fans are now hugely frustrated by Lamela’s failure to make it off the treatment table.

When Lamela is fit he is a key part of Mauricio Pochettino’s plans at Spurs.

Lamela’s energy allows Spurs to press from the front, and Pochettino is known to be a big admirer of the former Roma man, who has always played an important role when he has been off the treatment table. 

Spurs coped well without Lamela last term, but his eventual return will bolster their attacking ranks considerably.
