The Tottenham man produced a huge display in the Champions League tonight.
Tottenham Hotspur ended their winless streak with a brilliant performance and result at home to Red Star in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side headed into the encounter having not won for three matches. Their last European fixture ended in a heavy defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich.
The pressure was on to produce the goods against the Serbians and the London club didn’t disappoint, winning 5-0 on the night..
Spurs were impressive from kick-off, taking less then ten minutes to take the lead thanks to Heung-min Son, who also scored another before the interval. Those efforts were bolstered by Harry Kane, giving the home side a 3-0 lead at half-time.
Erik Lamela then piled on the pain with a classy effort in the second half. Kane then rounded off the scoring with a composed pass-like finish into the back of the net.
It was Lamela’s display that left many Spurs fans in awe. Not only did he score but also provided two assists. That’s an unlikely contribution considering he’s managed just one other assist in the entirety of 2019 so far.
There’s now likely to be a big boost to his confidence and he’ll be eager to start this weekend’s clash against rampant league leaders Liverpool.
Can the attacker now become the creative force many think he has the potential to be?
These fans loved his Tuesday night display at least, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts…
