Veteran pundit Martin Tyler was recently asked for his opinion on Tottenham Hotspur’s Erik Lamela and his answer was unequivocal given his recent form for manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Sky Sports commentator held a question and answer session with the broadcasters Premier League Twitter account and he tagged the 26-year-old Argentine international as being ‘one of the outstanding players in the Premier League this season.’
High praise indeed and Tyler went on to credit him for his comeback from his long-term injury problems the other year, to really work himself back into a rich vein of form for the club.

As he closes in on his 200th club appearance following his big-money arrival from Roma back in 2013, Lamela has already won plenty of praise from the fanbase for the uplift in form we have seen from him and he does boast six goals in 13 appearances for us in 2018/19 so far, and there are hopes that his form will continue and he will reach double figures, if not more, for the campaign as we seek further improvement once again.
He’ll also be looking for far more starts as the month’s tick by.
