Erik Lamela has admitted that Tottenham Hotspur were disappointed with their Premier League start after Saturday evening’s 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park.

It could have been worse for Mauricio Pochettino’s side after England midfielder Ross Barkley broke the deadlock inside three minutes on Merseyside.

However, Tottenham’s club-record signing Lamela levelled in the second half for Pochettino’s side to rescue a point against the Toffees.

But the Argentina international wasn’t overly impressed with Tottenham’s performance against Ronald Koeman’s new-look side at Goodison Park.

Lamela posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:

“Not the best first half, but we showed character to draw in the second,this is just the beginning … #COYS 1-1 ⚽”

Tottenham finished in third place in the Premier League table last season as Pochettino’s outfit secured a return to the Champions League.

The north Londoners will return to action next Saturday when the Lilywhites host Crystal Palace in their first home game of the season at White Hart Lane.
