Erik Lamela looks to be in a relaxed mood as he and his Tottenham Hotspur team-mates prepare for their Premier League trip to Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men head into the clash at St Mary’s looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 2-1 loss to Newcastle United at White Hart Lane last weekend.

Lamela has been in good form for the Lilywhites of late and scored a hat-trick in a man-of-the-match display during the 4-1 Europa League win over Monaco last week.

And the Argentina international was in full chill-out mode on Thursday afternoon as he relaxed at home with his pet dog.

Lamela posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “I’m chilling out at home with my dog who is sleeping! 🙈🐶
