Tottenham fans discuss Lucas Moura display against Chelsea

A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the performance of Lucas Moura after Spurs were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Chelsea.

Antonio Conte’s men endured another hugely frustrating night in the semi-final. They went into the game 2-0 behind after an abject performance at Stamford Bridge last week.

Unfortunately, their task only became even tougher inside the first 20 minutes. Antonio Rudiger headed home after Pierluigi Gollini failed to clear the ball from a corner.

Tottenham were awarded two penalties by Andre Marriner either side of the break. However, both decisions were subsequently overturned.

Harry Kane then had the ball in the net. However, the striker was offside. And the goal was disallowed.

Tottenham fans hoping for a performance that evoked memories of Amsterdam and their Champions League semi-final with Ajax were left disappointed. But one similarity to emerge was the feeling that Lucas was one player who stepped up.

He was unable to replicate his incredible hat-trick in 2019. But plenty of Tottenham fans felt that the Brazilian was their best player.

He did make some poor decisions in the final third. But he was often the one forcing Chelsea’s defence to back off him as he sprinted through, showing real intent to try and make something, anything happen.
