Since coming to Tottenham in the summer of 2013, Erik Lamela has struggled to find his form at White Hart Lane amongst several other new signings.

With a back injury last season, Lamela was unable to play many games and consequently scored very few goals, leaving fans questioning the young Argentine's ability.

However, after Lamela completed much more pre-season training than his Spurs teammates, he seems to have turned over a new leaf, scoring goals in the Premier League, Europa League and Capital one Cup, including a sensation rabona finish against Asteras Tripolis, which has been hinted goal of the year.

Lamela excelling

Playing alongside Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen, Lamela has excelled in his role as an attacking midfielder.

And with fellow Argentine Mauricio Pochettino managing him, he has been able to improve his game massively, much like how Bale did under Andre Villas-Boas.
