Erik Lamela endured back-to-back derby stalemates over the weekend.

The Argentina international was unable to inspire Tottenham to victory on Saturday afternoon after a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld put Tottenham into a 2-1 lead after cancelling out Aaron Ramsey’s opener but Alexis Sanchez netted a late equaliser for the Gunners.

Lamela tuned in for Sunday’s Superclasico between his former club River Plate and Boca Juniors but the Argentinian derby finished goalless.

However, the £30.75m signing looked to enjoy the Superclasico despite the lack of goals as he relaxed with a friend on Sunday night.

Lamela wrote on his Instagram page: “Taking @emiliano_panizza some mates with my friend , all ready for #superclasico! #vamosriver”

Tottenham are in second place and five points behind leaders Leicester City.

Lamela has scored three goals and made five assists in 26 Premier League appearances so far this season.
