Erik Lamela sends one-word message to Tottenham star on Instagram after today's win

Tottenham Hotspur made it seven points from three Premier League games following their 1-0 win over Wolves today.

Spurs were looking to follow up their win against Southampton and draw at Chelsea with another positive result.

However, Tottenham struggled to make inroads for much of the game, with just one effort of note in the first half.

Late on in the opening period, Ivan Perisic lofted a cross into the box for Harry Kane, but Jose Sa was equal to it.

However, Spurs picked up the pace after the interval and eventually broke the deadlock.

In the 64th minute, Son Heung-min’s corner was flicked on by Perisic and Harry Kane headed home.

It was Tottenham’s 1,000th home Premier League goal and Kane’s 250th goal for Spurs.

In addition, it was Kane’s 185th Premier League goal – the most a player has scored for one team in the competition.

The England international’s goal proved the difference between the two sides.

After the match, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg took to Instagram with a dressing-room photo of himself, Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier and Perisic.

One of the replies on Hojbjerg’s post was from Erik Lamela, who spent eight years at Tottenham.

He simply wrote “yesss”, along with applause, hands up and fire emojis.

Even though Lamela left Spurs a year ago, it’s nice to see he’s still keeping tabs on how his former club is doing.

Up next for Tottenham is a trip to Nottingham Forest next Sunday.
