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.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lamela took two shots, both on goal, and scored his first Premier League goal in Tottenham's 2-1 win over Burnley on Saturday.

Lamela came into the match as the highest-priced player to ever come into the Premier League and not score a goal, but that unflattering moniker is now behind him. Manager Mauricio Pochettino went back to his attacking midfield trio of Lamela, Nacer Chadli and Christian Eriksen, moving forward Roberto Soldado to the bench, and Lamela surely stands to benefit if the Argentine manager sticks to the plan. Up next is a Boxing Day trip to face Leicester City.

Lamela is not expected to play again this season due to his ongoing thigh injury, Goal.com reports. "He's probably not going to play this season," manager Tim Sherwood said Friday. "He's been out a very long time; he's going to need a pre-season before he can play.

Lamela, who came over from AS Roma in a 30 million transfer last summer, has been the definition of a disappointment, with injuries stealing most of his season. He has appeared in only nine Premier League games this season, recording one assist, which came back on September 22 against Cardiff, and zero goals.
