No goals in 2019: Tottenham attacker Lucas Moura has regressed

Lucas Moura was a crucial player for Tottenham in the first half of the season, as he chipped in with eight goals before New Year and was a regular starter Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

The £23million signing (BBC) was beginning to make a real mark at Spurs and the versatile attacker has the qualities to succeed in the Premier League.

His blistering pace saw him succeed as a winger at times to terrorise full-backs, while he was also effective in a more central role alongside Harry Kane.

But the 26-year-old has been invisible in 2019 so far and really needs to pull his socks up during the remainder of the campaign.

 

Spurs have been involved in 15 games across all competitions since January and Moura has featured in just eight of them.

Spurs have a fight for the top four still ahead of them and also the Champions League quarter-finals, which is why manager Pochettino is going to need his squad.

Moura may have fallen out of favour slightly in recent months, but needs to try rediscover the quality he showed earlier in the season and prove he can have a big role to play ahead of the switch to the new stadium.

He certainly give Spurs a fresh attacking dimension when he’s on top of his game and can be an instinctive finisher around the penalty area.
