Lord Sugar reacts on Twitter to Erik Lamela’s display in Tottenham v Monaco

Lord Sugar was pretty impressed by what he saw from Erik Lamela on Thursday night...

Lord Sugar could not believe his eyes after watching Erik Lamela hit a brilliant first-half hat-trick as Tottenham beat Monaco 4-1 in the Europa League on Thursday night.

The Argentina international was in inspired form at White Hart Lane and gave Spurs the lead inside two minutes when he slotted home after being found by Ben Davies.

Lamela than doubled Spurs’ lead and his tally for the evening when his shot squirmed under Monaco goalkeeper Danijel Subasic in the 14th minute.

And Lamela then completed his first hat-trick for the north London club when drove the ball in at Subasic’s near post eight minutes before half-time.

As the goals flew in, former Spurs chairman Sugar tweeted:

Monaco did pull a goal back through Stephan El Shaarawy in the second half, and Tom Carroll wrapped up a 4-1 win – but the headlines belonged to Lamela.

Tottenham, who are fifth in the table, turn their attentions back to Premier League affairs this weekend when they host Newcastle United at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
