Erik Lamela Scores Outrageous Rabona To Open Scoring For Spurs Against Arsenal
| Last updated
Erik Lamela has just scored an outrageous rabona to open the scoring for Spurs in the North London derby.
The Argentine was brought on in the first half by Jose Mourinho after Heung-Min Son pulled up with an injury and he produced complete and utter filth for the opener.
The ball dropped to Lamela in the box and with it slightly behind him, he readjusted superbly and wrapped his left boot around his right to fire a rabona past the helpless Bernd Leno and into the bottom of corner.
It was Spurs' first shot on target and boy did Lamela make it count.
Sergio Regulion's stunned reaction was a perfect representation of our facial expressions watching Lamela's pearler of a goal.
The Spaniard had his hands on his head, in complete and utter disbelief at what his teammate had just produced.
Prior to today, Lamela had gone 36 Premier League games without scoring but he ended that unwanted streak in style today.
It was a serious case of Deja Vu, with the former Roma man having scored a 20-yard rabona once before for Spurs in a Europa League game against Greek side Asteras Tripolis at White Lane back in 2014.
Arsenal, who were the better side at the Emirates, levelled matters on the stroke of half-time through Martin Odegaard's deflected effort.
