TBR View: Gareth Bale isn’t the only Tottenham player rolling his sleeves up

Understandably, Gareth Bale is grabbing the headlines right now for his recent Tottenham form.

The Spurs cult hero has four goals and three assists in his last four matches across all competitions, suggesting he’s beginning to get back to his best.

Bale, 31, is a skilful winger that appears to have rediscovered some form and it’s been difficult for him since he rejoined on loan in the summer from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Amid the Welshman’s revival, there has been another player who’s been stepping up under the radar lately to help Spurs produce some positive results during a challenging season.

Lucas Moura, 28, is a player that has rolled his sleeves up to perform without getting much media attention.

The £23million Brazilian attacker has scored three goals in the last four matches.

He’s netted in the two Premier League fixtures against Burnley and West Ham, showing his great pace and energy in both of those matches.


The South American was a bright spark in the West Ham loss with a superb header, plus against Burnley at the weekend he netted in the 4-0 victory and was heavily involved.

Meanwhile, he also helped seal qualification in the two legs against Wolfsberger in the Europa League Round of 32 knockout tie.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho must be filled with joy to see others contributing aside from Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.

Moura has remarkably made 39 appearances already this season and is a regular under Mourinho, but he needs to add to his goal tally of nine to keep himself in the XI and maintain his current form.

On his day he can be electric and such an asset to the Spurs team, so it’ll be intriguing to see how Mourinho uses him in the games ahead.
