Erik Lamela is a happy man after Saturday's derby win over Arsenal at White Hart Lane
Erik Lamela took to social media to express his delight at helping Tottenham Hotspur seal a 2-1 north London derby victory over Arsenal on Saturday.
Arsenal took lead in the 11th minute at White Hart Lane when Mesut Ozil finished off an Arsenal counter-attack.
But Spurs drew level in the second half when the in-form Harry Kane tapped home from close range in the 56th minute after David Ospina could only parry from a corner.
And man-of-the-match Kane then secured the three points with a superb header past Ospina four minutes from time to hand the home side victory in a pulsating derby game which Tottenham dominated.
Lamela played the full 90 minutes as Mauricio Pochettino’s men leapfrogged Arsenal into fourth place in the Premier League table.
And the Argentina international used his Instagram account to praise his team-mates after their memorable comeback win.
Lamela posted the picture above on his Instagram account and wrote: “The London derby is ours … we fought and played to get it! Very happy … enjoy this beautiful day! To keep working !! #COYS”
