Erik Lamela of Tottenham

Erik Lamela

This is going to be great news for the Spurs as forgotten man Erik Lamela could return to action for the first time in more than a year when Tottenham Hotspur travel to Leicester City on Tuesday night. Of course, this news comes with a pinch of salt as it is being reported that midfielder Harry Winks could miss out due to illness. (Evening Standard)

Let us park the news about Winks because I would talk about it a little later in the article. But, this is the time to rejoice the return of the Argentine midfielder. Even for his critics, the return of Lamela is romantic enough to give goosebumps.

Lamela has been out of action due to a number of hip injuries since October 2016. The last appearance for the midfielder came against Liverpool in the EFL Cup and I wouldn’t blame you if this is not on top of your mind – it has been that long!

The midfielder has spent time away from Tottenham during this period, undergoing surgeries on both hips. At one point, there were reports from his native Argentina indicating that the player was contemplating retirement as his rehabilitation was going nowhere.

However, full credit to the player who has never given up hope of coming back to competitive football. He made his return to action earlier this month when he started for the club’s Under-23s during their clash against Chelsea.

With Spurs set to take on Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday night, manager Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that his fellow countryman could be in line to make a comeback to the team.

Pochettino told the reporters (Evening Standard):

“The good news is that Erik Lamela has stepped up and is in contention for tomorrow.

“Always in a very busy schedule you need everyone fit to help the team and that is very good news for the team.”

Now to the bad news and I believe this is a tough blow to the club’s hopes of getting back into the title race. The 21-year-old is a regular starter for Pochettino this season and started the 1-1 draw at home to West Brom.

However, he was replaced by Mousa Dembele just after the hour mark at Wembley and could now miss the match against Leicester.

So, happy about Lamela but cautiously optimistic about Winks? Let’s hope he comes back soon.
