Tottenham fans went berserk on social media over Erik Lamela replacing Christian Eriksen in the 76th minute, and the attacker instantly came on and made a difference.
Spurs were 2-0 down to Leicester City ahead of the 25-year-old joining the game, and within minutes the winger grabbed an assist to make it 2-1.
The Argentine played the ball through to Harry Kane who struck it home – unfortunately Spurs weren’t able to grab an equaliser and still left the King Power Stadium with zero points.
The winger was making his first appearance for Tottenham since October 2016, as the attack-minded player has been kept out of action due to hip problems.
Fans were just excited to see him return to action, but were not let down by the 25-year-old’s ability to impact a game.
Here are the best reactions to Lamela instantly making an impact on his return:
Lamela has changed this game. Looking like Leicester City will bottle this.
