Hilarious slip up sees £30m Spurs man less likely to score than a substitute

A hawk-eyed fan has spotted a hilarious mistake in today’s betting odds for the Spurs vs Man City Premier League clash.

Club record signing Erik Lamela hasn’t really kicked on since his £30m from Roma three years ago, but has less chance of opening the scoring than a man initially starting as a substitute, apparently.

The Argentine, who starts today, has been frustrating since the mega money move, despite flashes of brilliance. Yes, THAT rabona goal last year. We are still talking about.

Having said that, it’s been very rare he’s looked like the Gareth Bale replacement the White Hart Lane outfit had been looking for when they shelled out such a large fee to secure his services.

Despite this, it seems certain bookmakers have more faith in a man who still start today watching from the dugout to score first than the 23-year old Argentina international.

Seems harsh to us, very harsh indeed.
