Erik Lamela is a player who has often divided opinion since moving to Tottenham back in 2013, but one thing that has never been in question is the Argentinian's natural ability.

After a frustrating few seasons in England, the 24-year-old winger found his feet last year and was a key figure for Mauricio Pocchetino's title-chasing side.

Lamela scored 11 times, and he's produced many magical moments in his career including that memorable rabona goal in the Europa League - and now he has another to add to his collection.

As you can see in the video further down the page, Lamela well and truly humiliated Andros Townsend with a terrific piece of skill late on during Spurs' 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

It was the Englishman's first time back at White Hart Lane since leaving the club in January, and after what happened, he arguably won't want to return.

Deep into stoppage time, with the ball heading out of play, Lamela casually rolled the ball through Townsend's legs and set off on a venture forward.

The nutmeg drew a brilliant reaction from Lamela's teammate Danny Rose. The full-back can be seen in the background putting his hands on his head in sheer disbelief at what he had just witnessed.

Spurs won the game thanks to a header from Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama eight minutes from time - his first goal for the club since moving from Southampton in the summer.
