Lamela scored a goal, tallied an assist and was issued a yellow card in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Manchester City.

Lamela confidently stood over a set piece in the 50th minute and found the head of Toby Alderweireld to give Spurs a lead they wouldn't relinquish. He then scored his second Premier League goal of the season in the 79th minute to put the final nail in the Manchester City coffin. Since the international break, Lamela has two goals and two assists in four appearances across all competitions. Discipline could be a problem for the Argentine winger down the road, as he's already amassed three yellow cards in the first six matches.

Lamela come on as a substitute and tallied an assist in Sunday's 1-0 victory over Sunderland.

Lamela has been mostly underwhelming for Spurs since arriving in the post-Gareth Bale spending spree, but played a perfect through ball to Ryan Mason, who netted the game-winning goal.

Lamela struggled again in his second season with Tottneham, scoring just five goals and providing seven assists.

It was a better return than the Argentine provided in his injury-plagued debut season in England, but he still did not resemble a player who cost $30 million to acquire. Lamela is likely to stay at Spurs in an attempt to prove himself in the Premier League, but he could be labeled as a flop if his level of play does not vastly improve.

Lamela took three shots, but none were on target, and he had four crosses during Spurs' 2-2 draw with West Ham on Sunday.

Lamela continues to be stuck on one Premier League goal this season, having netted against Burnley back on Dec. 20. While he's a consistent starter for manager Mauricio Pochettino, he's very limited in most fantasy formats.
