Tottenham fans bemused by Lucas’ non-involvement

Lucas Moura left Paris Saint-Germain in January because he struggled for football in the first half of the 2017-18 campaign.

The Brazilian made the move to Tottenham Hotspur, and probably assumed that he would be a regular for the London club in the second half of the season.

That has just not been the case, however, with the attacker starting just once in the Premier League since his arrival.

Ahead of Wednesday night’s key clash with Newcastle United, the Tottenham fans called on head coach Mauricio Pochettino to start Lucas.

The attacker was once again named on the bench against the Magpies though, and did not see a minute of action as Erik Lamela, Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose were introduced ahead of him.

Harry Kane scored the only goal of the contest as Tottenham secured all three points – and indeed a spot in next season’s Champions League – but the club’s supporters were once again left bemused by Lucas’ non-involvement.
