The countdown has started for Erik Lamela.

The Argentine forward - who celebrated reaching the century mark for us against Borussia Dortmund - has been in the form of his Spurs life this season with his high-energy style a perfect fit for Mauricio Pochettino's team and a big hit with fans.

After tasting disappointment over two legs in the Europa League against the Bundesliga giants, full focus is now on the final eight matches of the Premier League campaign.

And what a finale it could be! Eight matches to go and we sit second in the table, five points adrift of leaders Leicester City.

It all starts against Bournemouth at the Lane on Sunday (4pm) ahead of the international break over Easter weekend.

"We have to go game by game now and every game is so important," said Erik, second in our goalscoring list this term with nine in all competitions. "The points are all that really matter at this stage. We have eight finals left to play - and we'll try to win every one of them."
