Tottenham Hotspur finished third in the English Premier League this season after a dramatic final day win against Leicester City.
Trailing 3-1 in the match at Wembley, Mauricio Pochettino’s side clicked into gear and ended up winning the match 5-4 in a nine-goal thriller.
Doubles from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela helped their side to victory, delighting supporters who certainly weren’t let down with a boring end-of-season affair.
Supporters loved the contribution from Lamela, who has received his fair share of criticism over the last few months. Sunday’s goals were his first for the club since an FA Cup clash in March against relegated Swansea.
Is it a performance that demonstrates he has a long-term future at the club, or is this a one-off ahead of what could be an exit in the summer transfer window?
He’s certainly winning round some fans, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday display…

Erik Lamela today showed that he could be the catalyst to make things happen. He has improved with every season he has been at spurs and next season he could be even better and a key part of the squad #COYS #THFC

It's really odd that a week ago and yesterday, I said that we should sell Lamela, and low and behold he came through when we need him the most with two goals. Now this is awkward now transfer window is coming up…#COYS #THFC

Loved watching the match today. Some really solid performances from Lamela & KWP, to name a few. We needed a good goal fest & to end this season on a high note! Things are progressing…slowly, but surely at Spurs. #COYS
