After hinting Erik Lamela could be involved in Tottenham's Carabao Cup tie this week, Mauricio Pochettino has since ruled out the Argentine winger.
We have now hit the year mark since we last witnessed Lamela in action and his long-term hip injury rehab has not gone as swimmingly as hoped. First hinting at a return Wednesday night, Pochettino ruled Lamela out, adding "I cannot say tomorrow, one week, or one month" regarding his return. Once Lamela is indeed ready for competitive action, one wonders how he would fit in Pochettino's current preferred system with three center backs and wingbacks. With Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli locked in at the attacking midfield positions, a right wingback role may be Lamela's only opening. However, he does not live up to the defensive levels of Serge Aurier or Kieran Trippier. Oct 24 - 10:22 PM
