'Only player that turned up': Some Spurs fans believe ace was the one 'bright spot' in 3-0 loss
Tottenham were given a harsh reality check as Patrick Vieira’s side slaughtered the north London side. Palace played Spurs off the pitch at Selhurst Park.
With Spurs heading into the game with three wins and three clean sheets, confidence was high amongst supporters that another victory against Palace would be on the table.
Yet as we know, Tottenham were woeful against the south London side. Injury to Eric Dier and a red card for Japhet Tanganga did little to improve the club’s fortunes.
Moreover, with the loss coming to a side managed by an Arsenal legend, the defeat to Palace was that extra bit painful for Spurs. However, there was one bright spot.
Supporters were happy with how Lucas Moura performed, with the Brazilian attacker once again impressing under Nuno. However, the winger was unable to do much with Tottenham faltering and Palace on fire on the day.
Fans on social media were happy with how the former PSG star performed. And here’s what some Spurs supporters had to say on Twitter about Lucas’ display against the Eagles…

Firstly, Crystal Palace deserved the win, they where much the better side, as for Spurs, they where woeful from back to front, Tanganga let his teammates down with a stupid sending off, Kane went missing as did everyone else, only Lucas had a half decent match, not good enough pic.twitter.com/2JMVEqXYWg— JB Coys (@julesbevis) September 11, 2021

Dele and Lucas the only bright sparks today, everyone else dreadful.
Gotta work it out, Nuno lad. https://t.co/suZgOZX1NL
The xG shot map from #CRYTOT says it all.#thfc looked dire. Lucas the only bright spot. Davies at fault for the penalty, Rodon at fault for an Édouard goal (drifted away from him, left him unmarked in box).— Ben Griffis (@BeGriffis) September 11, 2021
Spurs have barely created this season & were caught out today #coys pic.twitter.com/Ff94mA2AAd
It’s a bit unfair to highlight certain players, as to be honest they were all way below par, only Lucas put in some resemblance of effort.— Kevlar THFC (@KlbSpurs) September 11, 2021
Even before the craziness, it was Lucas and Kane v. The World.— SpursUSA (@SpursUSA) September 11, 2021
Tottenham should NEVER be so reliant on only two players in attack against a mid-table side. NEVER.
