Man on fire.

To quote the late, great Michael Jackson: "It's as easy as 1-2-3." Erik "Coco" Lamela has finished off a first half hat trick against AS Monaco in the UEFA Europa League. After starting his Spurs career in absolutely miserable form, Lamela has shown resolve to become one of the most important players in the current side.

After a very sloppy giveaway in the midfield by Monaco, Hueng-Min Son collected the loose ball then found Lamela in arces of space near the top of the 18-yard box. He took it in stride, went in on goal and finished confidently with his weak foot past the goalkeeper to give Spurs a 3-0 lead before halftime.
