Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Erik Lamela can't wait to return to Europa League action on Thursday night
Erik Lamela has issued a rallying cry to his Tottenham Hotspur team-mates ahead of their clash against Anderlecht on Thursday night.
The north London side face the Belgian outfit in the Europa League clash looking to cement their spot at the top of Group J.
Tottenham are in good form ahead of their European fixture after a goalless draw with Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday extended their unbeaten run to eight games.
And Lamela, who has scored three goals and made two assists in 10 appearances in all competitions this term, is excited to return to Europa League action.

Spurs eased to a 3-1 victory over Qarabag in their group-stage opener at White Hart Lane before a 1-1 draw with Ligue 1 side Monaco.
