Erik Lamea has been forced to the sidelines since last October, due to a hip injury but now it seems as the midfielder can return for Tottenham
Mauricio Pochettino hasn’t been able to put Erik Lamela in his first-team squad for over a year due to the 25-year-old’s injury. However, the Argentine attacker seems like he is ready for action as he lines up for Tottenham U23s against Chelsea.
The Argentine attacker had been a regular in the first-team under Mauricio Pochettino but a hip injury has kept him out since his last appearance on October 25, 2016, against Liverpool in the EFL Cup, GOAL reports.
Lame will get ready for his return as the U23 side of Tottenham faces the Blues of London, meanwhile the senior team goes on to battle with Arsenal in the two side’s North London derby on Saturday.
Pochettino’s side need a win over their London rivals as they are looking to finally win something at the end of the season, since their last trophy win was in 2008. They are currently third-place in the English Premier League, chasing still unbeaten leaders Manchester City.Top 5 Premier League players in September’s last weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – A fresh Premier League fixture just ended, which means we can talk about the Top 5 best players of September’s last weekend.After a fresh…
In the meantime, Spurs U-23s are eighth in their 12-team division – one point ahead of Chelsea U23s, so that clash seems like an exciting one as well.
Lamela has made 121 appearances for Tottenham since joining from Roma in 2013 and is contracted to the club until 2020, GOAL continues.
Back in Italy, where he spent two seasons with Roma, the attacking midfielder has appeared in 62 games and scored important goals for the Serie A giants.
In the 4 years he has spent with Spurs, Lamela has played in 85 games and scored 8 goals. His injury held him back though, but once he returns, the Tottenham offense can be even more lethal than it is now.
How soon can he return to the senior team? We don’t know yet, but the Argentine is certainly on the right path.
