Erik Lamela hasn’t had the best of luck with injuries during his time at Tottenham. While the 26-year-old has shown glimpses of his talent time and again, he has struggled to consistently nail down a starting spot at the North London club, due to his repeated spells on the treatment table.
Lamela’s talent and injury record aside however, one thing the Argentinian undoubtedly has in abundance is commitment to the cause. Lamela always works his socks off for the team and plays with a passion that Spurs fans have come to admire. The 26-year-old is now arguably producing his best form in a Spurs shirt, albeit as a super-sub for the most part.
The attacking midfielder was at it again yesterday when he came off the bench to score Tottenham’s decisive second goal which eventually gave them the three points against Brighton. Yesterday’s goal meant that the Argentine has scored four goals and assisted one for the Lilywhites in his last 98 minutes on the pitch.
Lamela’s passion was in full-display after he got his goal at the Amex, as he celebrated in front of the Tottenham fans by proudly pointing at the club’s crest.

It was clear that Lamela understood how much the goal meant to the Tottenham faithful, after the team suffered three back-to-back defeats recently. If the 26-year-old maintains his form, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes a regular starter again for Spurs.
