Erik Lamela is definitely a player who splits opinion among the Tottenham Hotspur fanbase, and for the record, I’m not his biggest fan.
Lamela started the match against West Bromwich Albion and his display in the first 45 minutes has caused some Spurs fans to take to social media to share their views on the Argentine.
He’s full of tricks and flicks but there’s little end product. I would much rather see Lucas Moura given a chance, he’s hardly had a kick since he moved from PSG in January, we need a player who is going to attack West Brom with pace and be direct.
Am I being harsh? Share your views below. Here’s a selection of views from the Spurs fan base.
Lamela’s falling over shot is the most pathetic thing in football

It’s genuinely bizarre that Lamela feels the need to slid every time he shoots.

Playing lamela ahead of both son and Lucas is criminal

Definitely needed some fresh legs in there but just play Lucas not Lamela.

What does Moura have to do to get a start.
Lamela of all people. So again no pace. Poch you are bang average

Don't get why a lot of Tottenham fans would rather see Son than Lamela at the moment. Son had been so poor recently whereas Lamela has looked good and done nothing wrong. If anything it should be Lucas who should be playing
