Lucas Moura put in a spectacular performance, and bagged a fine brace, as Tottenham Hotspur won 3-0 against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday night.
The Brazilian played in an advanced central position, effectively forming a strike partnership alongside Harry Kane. The pair combined well throughout the match, and were a constant menace to the Red Devils’ defence.
Moura’s second goal and Spurs’ third, scored in the 84th minute, killed off the game and secured a historic victory for the visitors in white, maintaining their 100% record so far in this new Premier League campaign.
The 26-year-old only joined the North London club from PSG in January, and will be delighted to have begun his first full season in England both in the starting XI and in such good form.
However, another North London outfit may now wish they’d beaten their neighbours to the attacker’s signature.
These Arsenal fans on Twitter certainly think that the Gunners would have been wise to land Moura when they had the chance…

I hope the Arsenal Scouting team watched that performance from Lucas Moura and acknowledge how important it is to have players who have pace and are direct. The lack of natural speed/width in Arsenal’s front line is hindering us #MNF #MNUTOT
