​Tottenham's Lamela warned over showboating

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has told Erik Lamela he is unimpressed by the attacker's party tricks on the pitch.

Lamela delighted Tottenham fans with a nutmeg on former Spurs winger Andros Townsend in the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last weekend.

But Pochettino said: "I can understand the fans' reaction to it but I don't like this type of thing.

"I know fans like it a lot but I enjoy it when players score goals and when we win games.

"For me it was only a moment in the game but it didn't create any emotion in me. It was just an action, a moment in the game."
