Brazilian Lucas Moura has to be back in the Tottenham XI against Burnley

Tottenham host Burnley on Saturday in the Premier League and manager Mauricio Pochettino needs to continue his rotation policy by recalling Lucas Moura to the starting XI.

Spurs secured their qualification for the Champions League knockouts rounds in midweek with a 1-1 draw away to Barcelona and Moura made the vital difference off the bench.

The 26-year-old made a colossal impact in his second-half cameo by igniting a spark in the final third and he tapped in the equaliser late on from a Harry Kane cross.

Moura has now scored two goals in his last three games across all competitions and it seems like he is threatening to hit peak form again.

The versatile attacker is a speed machine that can play on the wing or in a more central role and he’s really started to settle in England this season following his January arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.

His trickery and directness to goal adds something extra to Spurs going forward, which is something that made the difference in the Champions League.

Pochettino’s side are expected to carve through a poor Burnley defence this campaign and it could be a prime scenario for Morua to add to his seven-goal tally for the season.
