Lucas Moura can rediscover his mojo in the absence of first-team duo

Tottenham Hotspur attacker Lucas Moura has a golden chance to rediscover the form he showed in the opening weeks of the season.

The Brazilian has gone off the boil recently, and has missed the last couple of Premier League matches through injury.

The January 2018 signing from Paris Saint-Germain is in contention to return for the weekend clash with Fulham, where he will be hoping to get his campaign back up and running.

Moura has scored six league goals this term so far, and laid on two assists for teammates.

 

Kane and Son absences pave the way

In what is a bitter blow for Tottenham, striker Harry Kane has been ruled out of action until early March (The Telegraph), after damaging ankle ligaments against Manchester United last weekend.

The Englishman is an ever-present for Mauricio Pochettino and will be missed by Spurs – he’s plundered 14 league goals and made six assists.

Heung-min Son is now on Asia Cup duty with South Korea, and he could miss the next four games if the nation reaches the final.

It’s a huge double blow for Spurs, and so Pochettino will hope Moura – who has just one goal in his last seven league appearances – can rediscover the form that saw him land the August Player of the Month award.

It could be that he plays up front in a partnership with Fernando Llorente, with Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela in the wider positions.
