Erik Lamela has pinpointed the spirit within the Tottenham Hotspur squad for the recent run of fine form.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won their last six games in a row that includes impressive recent displays against Chelsea and Inter Milan.

Lamela was himself lucky to remain on the pitch in the Champions League victory against the Italians last night after appearing to stamp two footed on Marcelo Brozovic just before the half time whistle.

The 26-year-old is now looking to continue the club’s rich vein of recent results when they travel to the Emirates on Sunday to take on Arsenal in the Premier League where only three points separate the rivals in the table.

The opposition are also in good form having won their last sixteen games in all competitions.

Lamela has managed to stay relatively injury free this campaign, which has seen him score six goals in all competitions for Spurs.

“The team is together because we fight for each other on the pitch,” he told Sky Sports.

“We are very good team-mates and we have an amazing group that’s been together for a lot of years.

“I think you can see on the pitch we are fighters.

“What we want is to win something and this season can be a good opportunity for us because the team is showing good performances in the last few games.”
