Erik Lamela produced one of his best-ever performances in a Tottenham shirt on Tuesday night. The 27-year-old had a hand in three goals as Spurs put Crvena zvezda to the sword, winning 5-0 at home. Lamela has been a regular under Mauricio Pochettino and continues to reward his manager’s faith with goals and assists.

The Argentine international whipped in a corner for Harry Kane to head home in the ninth minute (1-0), crossed for Heung-min Son to finish from close range in the 16th minute (2) and got on the scoresheet in the 57th minute (4-0). Lamela was a constant threat throughout the game and could have scored a hat-trick on another day.

Against Crvena zvezda, Lamela played for 90 minutes, made 57 touches, create three chances, had five shots and three on target, made one clearance, completed 91.9% of his 37 passes, has whipped in four crosses with 50% accuracy, made two tackles and made one successful dribble.

Lamela has featured in every game in every competition this season, making 13 appearances. The 27-year-old has contributed six goals in 732 minutes of football and is becoming undroppable under Pochettino.
