Tottenham have gotten off to a perfect start this season after crushing QPR, 4-0, and find themselves sitting top of the table thanks to the production of players like Erik Lamela.

Some of the key figures who were brought in after the mammoth Gareth Bale deal last summer are beginning to bear fruit. Spurs ran circles around a poorly organized Rangers side with Nacer Chadli bagging a brace and Lamela, who was especially lively, providing two assists. Eric Dier continued to make his mark, scoring his second goal in as many games and Emmanuel Adebayor found the score sheet as well for Spurs fourth and final goal. There is still some player movement likely to occur before the end of the summer window, but right now, Pochettino looks like he has got a plan and so far it is working quite well. If you dont have Lamela in your fantasy squad yet, hurry up and grab him while he is dirt cheap.

Erik Lamela came off the bench to change the game as Tottenham fought from a goal down to claim the advantage in their Europa League play-off tie against Limassol.

Spurs had fallen behind to an early Limassol goal and looked to be heading for a first leg defeat before Lamela was brought off the bench with less than 20 minutes to go. The winger set up Roberto Soldado's equaliser with a lofted through ball, before a terrific pass from the Argentinian was finished by Harry Kane to turn the tie around. The performance should ensure Lamela starts the game against QPR in Week 2, and he remains a terrific bargain in the Yahoo fantasy game.

Last season was a poor one for Erik Lamela, but he could prove a bargain this season as detailed by Nik Argiropoulos in this week's player picks column.

Branded a £30million flop last season, Lamela only featured in six Premier League games due to poor form and injury, but is now fit and has stated he is enjoying working under fellow Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino. Two man-of-the-match performances and three goals in pre-season, the winger is looking quick, sharp and confident, creating chances and shooting plenty. At a price of less than £3million in the Yahoo fantasy game he should be under consideration for your squad.

Record-signing Erik Lamela scored twice in the first half as Tottenham beat FC Toronto 3-2 in a pre-season friendly.

Is this the first sign of the "new lease of life" Lamela mentioned in an interview earlier in the week? The winger was excellent in the first half of this match, looking fit, sharp and showing a good understanding with team-mates Christian Eriksen, Aaron Lennon and Roberto Soldado. Lamela hit two good strikes with his left foot - both assisted by Soldado - with substitute Andros Townsend adding the winner late in the game after Toronto had fought back from two goals down. This was another good work out for Mauricio Pochettinho's squad, although five goals conceded in two games will be a slight concern, even at this early stage of pre-season.

Erik Lamela has insisted that he never considered leaving Tottenham Hotspur and is ready to show his best form this season after recovering from injury

Lamela signed for a club record fee of approximately £30million last summer, but had a desperate first season in the Premier League. The 22-year-old struggled to settle in a new country, failed to grasp the language, hit an extended patch of poor form and suffered numerous injuries, meaning he only featured in six league games. A move back to Serie A had been widely reported, but the Argentinian winger is making all the right noises in the press about the season ahead, with the arrival of new manager and countryman Mauricio Pochettino mentioned as a huge positive in his quotes. Time to prove your doubters wrong, Erik.

Tottenham Hotspur youngster Erik Lamela has been ruled out for the season with a back injury.

Lamela has already been out an extended period of time but was hoping to return sometime this season. The young Argentinian forward has struggled to adapt to life in England and has so far been a huge waste of money for Tottenham. The club and player will both hope he can do a better job next season, but don't be surprised to see him leave in the summer if Spurs can get any sort of meaningful offer for him.

Ossie Ardiles has backed his Argentina compatriot Erik Lamela to come through his difficult start to life at Tottenham and show the fans why the club spent a record £30m on the winger.

Tim Sherwood echoed Ardiles thoughts by stating he was certain Lamela will prove a success at White Hart Lane. The bad news for the young winger is that he's out for a further six weeks with an injury setback. The club expect him to return before the end of the season, but this extended absence is not helpful as Lamela continues to struggle to adapt both on and off the field, where he has so far failed to learn the language. The 21-year-old has been picked to start only three times in the league and his one goal for the club came in the Europa League group phase win over FC Sheriff. You can be sure Chairman Daniel Levy was expecting more for his £30million investment.

Erik Lamela’s wants to quit Tottenham, according to his father.

Tottenham's club record £30million signing has struggled to settle at White Hart Lane, with starting opportunities limited after some poor performances earlier in the season. Lamela's father told Italian journalists "Erik is not happy and wants to go back to Italy. He has been linked with Lazio, but I don’t know anything about this. Could he re-join Roma? I don’t know.". However, it seems unlikely Spurs would give up on the attacker so early in his career and the word from inside the club is that Lamela will be given until at least the end of the season to give him the chance to prove he won't be a flop.

Tottenham have sacked manager Andre Villas-Boas in the wake of the club's 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool.

This was inevitable after the calamitous performance at White Hart Lane on Sunday, so soon after the 6-0 hammering at Manchester City. There is no doubting the quality of Tottenham's squad but AVB has been unable to get the best out of the majority of the players including the likes of Erik Lamela and Roberto Soldado and yesterday was the final straw for Daniel Levy and the Tottenham board. Managers linked to the role include Michael Laudrup and Fabio Capello, and Spurs will be expected to move quickly to have someone in place for the busy Christmas period.

Erik Lamela scored his first goal for Tottenham as they ran out 2-1 winners over Sheriff Tiraspol to qualify for the next stage of the Europa League.

Lamela put in a man of the match performance, scoring the opening goal with a nice finish before producing a wonderful run past three defenders which ended with the club record signing being brought down for a penalty. Jermain Defoe dispatched the spot kick before Sheriff grabbed a consolation goal. Spurs fans will be relieved to finally see Lamela showing his quality and the attacker could be in contention to start against Newcastle this weekend.

Tottenham midfielder Erik Lamela has promised the club's fans that they will see him at his best once he has adjusted to life in the Premier League.

This falls in line with the words of Andre Villas-Boas, who had suggested Lamela is taking time to settle in London and it was affecting his performances. The club record signing showed some signs of improvement against Hull last night but is still struggling to deal with the more physical nature of the English game and also missed his penalty in the shootout. He'll be hoping for more chances to impress in the coming weeks.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas says Erik Lamela is not producing "half" of what he is capable of.

It's safe to say club record signing Lamela has had a slow start to his Tottenham career, and Villas-Boas has hinted that the forward's inability to speak any English is slowing his potential progress. AVB did add that Lamela's family are now living with him in London so that could help him settle, but he still has a lot of work to do to oust Andros Townsend on the right wing and start to justify his £30million price tag.

Tottenham team to face Sheriff Tiraspol: Lloris; Naughton, Chiriches, Vertonghen, Fryers; Dembele, Sandro; Lamela, Eriksen, Lennon; Defoe. Subs: Friedel, Dawson, Chadli, Holtby, Sigurdsson, Adebayor, Soldado

Andre Villas-Boas has named a strong team, including club record signing Erik Lamela, as Spurs look to secure qualification to the knock-out stages of the Europa League against Moldovam side Sheriff Tiraspol. Aaron Lennon makes his first start since the opening day of the season, while regular starters Andros Townsend, Paulinho, Michael Dawson, Kyle Walker and Roberto Soldado are either on the bench or rested completely. Emmanuel Adebayor is also on the bench and will be hoping for a run out.
