Lamela looking for Sevilla impact

Lamela was part of Tottenham's swap deal with the Spanish club for Bryan Gil, departing the North London club after eight years.

Goal-laden start

Lamela scored twice on his Sevilla debut as they beat Rayo Vallecano 3-0, before he netted a 93rd-minute winner against Getafe in his second game on Monday.

Speaking after the game, Lamela spoke about his side's difficulty in breaking Getafe down.

He said: "It was a complicated game, we couldn't find much space and we didn't play the football we wanted to play. We won and that's what's important."

Lamela went on to give his reaction to the quick start that he has made with his new club and is looking forward to the rest of their season.

Best

He added: "I came to give my best, to do the best possible and I have had luck to start in that way, that is marvellous for me. It's the start and we all have to improve a lot. We have a great team and we are going to improve every day."

In all competitions the Argentinian scored 37 goals in 257 games for Spurs. Before his time with Tottenham, he had spells with Roma and River Plate and the 29-year-old has also scored three goals in 25 appearances for Argentina.

Sevilla finished fourth last season, nine points behind title winners Atletico Madrid on 77 points, and they go to Elche on Saturday.
