Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino brought winger Lucas Moura into the starting XI for the Champions League win over Inter Milan on Wednesday evening, but the Brazilian didn’t do enough to warrant a spot in the team for the North London derby on Sunday.
According to WhoScored, Moura played an impressive four key passes in the clash with the Italian giants, but in truth Tottenham never really got going until the introduction of Son Heung-min for Moura just after the hour-mark.
Son, who scored a brilliant solo goal against Chelsea last weekend, should be the one who gets the nod for the derby on Sunday then.

Moura, a January 2018 signing from Paris Saint-Germain, started this campaign in strong form after a full pre-season with the Lilywhites, whereas Son has only just started to hit top form having spent the summer at both the World Cup and the Asian Games with South Korea.
Moura also proved against Inter that he is too wasteful with big chances, as he fired his only shot of the game straight at Samir Handanovic. Pochettino then cannot risk this against Arsenal, and Moura must be dropped to the bench.
So, Spurs fans, do you think Moura should start at the Emirates on Sunday? Have your say by voting in the poll below.
