Tottenham booked their spot in the Carabao Cup final with a 2-0 win over Brentford last night, but their former player Jamie O’Hara did manage to find one negative in the performance of Lucas Moura.
Spurs will face either Manchester United or Manchester City in the domestic cup final, after goals from Moussa Sissoko and Heung-Min Son secured a win on Tuesday night over Championship outfit Brentford.
Jose Mourinho’s side will now focus on the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League in the next couple of months, but have a cup final to look forward to in April.
It was a professional display from Spurs against a second-tier club, with their quality eventually shining through when Son scored a brilliant second goal.
But O’Hara wasn’t convinced by the contribution of Spurs attacker Moura, who was substituted off during the second-half.
Aside from a deflected header from a corner, the 28-year-old right-winger failed to really create any goalscoring opportunities and seemed quiet from open play.
Need to see more from Moura, drifts in and out of games and shows no cutting edge this season, #spurs

It’s worth noting that Spurs’ performance against Brentford was strong without being spectacular, but Moura should feel it was a real wasted opportunity.
The £80,000-a-week (Spotrac) Brazilian attacker hasn’t started a Premier League match since October and last night’s performance shows why he’s not getting much of a look-in right now.
There is plenty of competition within the squad for the starting position on the right wing and he failed to really send out a message to the manager with his semi-final display.
