Lamela has struggled since leaving Roma to move to Spurs during the summer, but the Argentine believes that he will be able to show that he is well-suited to English football once he has played more games.
The 21-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I feel good here, although getting used to life here in every sense is a completely different thing. I've barely been here two months, so time is maybe what I need.
"I need training, a bit of rhythm, some games. English football is very different from the game in Italy - much more physical, whereas Serie A is more tactical.
"It's not necessarily more difficult, but it's just different. This is a style of football that I like very much, though, and I think that, with the way I play, it will be very suited to my game."
Lamela has yet to start a Premier League fixture for his new club.
