Welcome back. Another great option to have. I think our fans will give him a deserved rapturous applause when he takes to the pitch once more.

As @ browndchl suggested above, be great to give him the reception he deserves by way of a last 20 minutes cameo against spam.

I hope he gets to play a bit at 10. It will use him where he is most dangerous and will enable us to keep Eriksen fresh and motivated. Will be like a new signing.

If he's fit enough, I would play him against West Ham:
Vorm
Foyth Toby Davies
Trippier Dier Winks KWP
Lamela Llorente Son
I suspect we'll see this team (similar to Real match) against Pool:
Lloris
Toby Sanchez Verts
Winks
Aurier Sissoko Alli Rose
Eriksen Kane​

I think of Lamela as Pochettino's avatar on the pitch. The embodiment of fighting spirit and creativity.

Not expecting too much too soon, but great to have him back.

If he's up to it, i'd even think about having him on the bench tomorrow. His attitude, work rate his constant desire to play it up the pitch and his creativity could be useful against Liverpool. Especially at a place like Wembley where we have a habit of getting frustrated and going missing.

I think the longer Lamela has been out the more people have invented things he does.

He's rarely ever replicated the style or skill he showed at Roma for us. He's nowhere near displacing Eriksen or Dele behide/alongside Kane. He's not even 1st choice to fill in, being behind Son.
If he starts game's regularly he's going to have to be playing like De Bruyne on steroids.
I’m sure what we'll see is lots of elbows and digs, lots of running. Some goals occasionally and some assists occasionally.
