Erik Lamela one positive from Barcelona defeat according to Spurs fans

Despite suffering a 4-2 defeat at the hands of Barcelona, Spurs fans were particularly impressed with Erik Lamela’s performance after the Argentinian put in a good shift on a night where most of their players fell short of the standards set by opposition players like Lionel Messi, Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic.

Lamela started in the No.10 role right behind striker Harry Kane with Lucas Moura and Son Heung-Min either side of him, but Spurs struggled to get momentum going in the first half as the Spanish side took control of proceedings.

The second half however saw Mauricio Pochettino’s have more time on the ball that allowed a player like Lamela to have an impact. The 26-year-old scored Tottenham’s second goal of night, although it was via a deflection, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Catalan giants claiming victory.

Spurs fans, some of whom have not been the attacker’s biggest supporters in the past on Twitter, reacted to his latest performance, suggesting they are pleased to see him back to his best, hoping he could continue his current form throughout the season.
