Tottenham Hotspur continued their charge in the Premier League on Monday evening, securing a memorable 3-0 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side boasts a 100% record from their first three matches of the campaign, raising hopes of dethroning Manchester City from the summit of English football this term.
With Son Heung-Min away on international duty, many fans will have been concerned by the void the South Korea ace left in the side with his absence but they have seen Lucas Moura step up to fill that position in style.
The former Paris Saint-Germain ace put in a Man of the Match performance for the Lilywhites on Monday evening, scoring a brace to quell Jose Mourinho’s side.
His performance attracted plenty of attention and many fans took the opportunity to praise the Brazil star for his display when he posted on Twitter after the win.

Well played Lucas, amazing what the benefit of a full pre-season can do.
You absolutely terrified that Man Utd defence tonight and will give both Smalling and Jones a sleepless night.
Have no doubt the rest of the defenders from the Premier League are watching you with fear!
