Tottenham Hotspur winger Erik Lamela will not have it all his own way as he bids to return to the side.

Lamela was pictured in first team training yesterday as he stepped up his comeback after 12 months on the sidelines with an injured hip.

The Argentine will face a challenge for his first team spot from young winger Anthony Georgiou, 20, pictured above with Lamela.

Georgiou made his Tottenham Hotspur debut in the Champions League before the international break, in an away win against APOEL Nicosia.

Is a Premier League debut possible for Georgiou?

If there is a game where he has a chance within the next month, then it is this Saturday against Bournemouth.

After that the schedule gets a bit tougher, with upcoming fixtures against Liverpool and Manchester United.

In between he could get involved against West Ham in the Carabao Cup.

The Bournemouth game could be a good opportunity to put Georgiou in off the bench if Spurs are up by a big score, and see if he can contribute.

He will be an interesting measuring stick too for Spurs as they compare the more experienced Lamela as he makes his return.

Time may be running out for Georgiou to leap ahead of him in the pecking order, but it's also the perfect opportunity right now for him to shine and try and out-do the Argentine in training.
