Tottenham fans will love this Twitter message from Erik Lamela
By Amir Mir
Erik Lamela has recollected the moment Tottenham beat Manchester United 3-0 at White Hart Lane in April 2016.
The 25-year-old started that Premier League match one year ago today where he was one of three goalscorers.
Dele Alli, Toby Alderweireld and Lamela all scored within the space of six minutes as Spurs were, at that time, looking to close the gap on eventual winners Leicester City.
The White Hart Lane faithful will love the winger’s comments on that game as the club’s official Twitter account remembered that winning moment.
“What a feeling,” Lamela wrote on his personal Twitter account when responding to the United win last season. “Three goals in six minutes. Remember it.”
