Tottenham Hotspur had a poor outing last night at the King Power Stadium. If you ask me, the loss to Leicester City was a tough blow to take. After starting the season with high hopes of challenging for the title, the title run of Spurs is fast unravelling into a non-existent one.

I do not subscribe to the view that the title is already won by Manchester City but I believe that it is theirs to lose. For Tottenham or for that matter any side to win the title, it would need a monumental collapse from the table-toppers. There are no signs from Pep Guardiola’s side, yet, that this could happen. However, if ever there is someone I want to wage a fiver on coming back from the most difficult situation, it would be Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine must be smarting from the loss but he would have been elated with the return of his countryman Erik Lamela. The forgotten man of Tottenham went through some very difficult period last year and returned to first-team action after 13 months.

That’s a long time, isn’t it? In 13 months timeframe, I have seen careers built; careers ruined, and stars born. So, what Lamela has achieved by coming back to show his determination and passion for the game is extraordinary.

The midfielder is never far from the fans on the social media and always elicits opinions ranging at both extremes. After the loss, the fans took to Twitter to discuss the return of Lamela. We captured some of the best reactions:
