Tottenham Hotspur returned from the global break with a hard fought 1-0 win over West Ham United at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and their fans were quick to praise their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris after the match. "That is the key".
With Spurs chasing silverware on several fronts, the manager challenged Lamela to maintain his form for the rest of the season. Now he needs to be consistent. "To manage things in the right way and understand where he came from", he said.
Lamela added: "I was injured a lot and now I'm feeling good and enjoying the moment".
"Lamela was good, [which is] fantastic for him and his belief, and it was three very important points ahead of a tough period we have". Their last loss came at Liverpool on September 15.
"But if you can not achieve what you need or want, then to sign because you need to make happy people or act like all the clubs, I think that's not common sense".

The home side started the second period brightly and nearly equalised but Arnautovic's fine header from Aaron Cresswell's cross was superbly tipped over the bar by Lloris.
The highlights were two superbs save by Hugo Lloris from Arnautovic.
While the Argentine found the back of the net, it was the heroics performed by Lloris in denying West Ham scoring that earned Tottenham a big victory, made all the more important by the fact that they were nowhere near their best on the day.
