The Argentine has failed to win over the White Hart Lane faithful since his £30m mega money from Serie A giants Roma three years ago.
Hats off to Lamela. He's worked his socks off today. Great composure to sit Demichelis and Caballero down and smash home #COYS

However, he has been involved in three of the goals in today’s early kick-off, after Toby Alderweireld headed in his cross to put the home side 2-1 up.
Lamelaaaaaaa!!!!! What a game he has had. That really is the cherry on top!

He then won the free-kick after some good work outside the box, that led to Harry Kane netting his first goal of the season after Christian Eriksen rattled the bar.
Deserved standing ovation for Erik Lamela. Best I've seen him play here, and I was here for the rabona.

The 23-year old then raced behind the City back line in order to round stand in shot stopper Willy Caballero to put his side 4-1 up.
Perhaps this is the start of something great for the player brought in during the infamous summer spending spree of 2013.
If anything we've underpaid @OfficialASRoma…
