Tottenham had to dig deep in the 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion as the hosts gave us a scare in the final minutes of the game.
Spurs ensured we arrested our three-game losing streak against the Seagulls and credit must be given to Erik Lamela, who changed things once he came on.
The Argentine scored the second goal of the game and it was a great move too. The former Roma attacker has struggled to stay fit in the Premier League but we are seeing glimpses of his quality this season.
Tottenham didn’t sign players in the summer window, meaning Lamela could be a key player for the rest of the campaign.
The Tottenham man was happy with the win and posted an update on Twitter too.
Que alegría volver a ganar! Muy contento con la actuación del equipo! Vamos! 💪💪

Now fit; showing the form seen when signed originally. Once add goals to skills and work rate a top class player. 👌
