'Special player': Some Spurs fans rave about star who 'is Tottenham Hotspur', following Morecambe win

Tottenham Hotspur came from behind late on to avoid a massive shock FA Cup exit at the hands of Morecambe Town in north London today.

Antonio Conte’s side were losing until the final 15 minutes and it took a goal from Harry Winks to kickstart a late revival for Spurs. They had looked on course for a shock defeat, after Anthony O’Connor had scored in the opening 45 minutes.

But Winks’ goal, coupled with some inspired subs from Conte, ensured Tottenham have their name in the hat for round four. Lucas Moura scored the elusive second, while Harry Kane helped himself to a late third to seal the deal. All in all, it was a better second half and something for Conte to build on.

And while Spurs fans booed Tanguy Ndombele off the pitch, the same opinion isn’t held of their Brazilian forward, Lucas Moura. As well scoring when he came on, the diminutive South American was all-action in his performance as he helped swing the game.

Why Do Footballers Demand Higher Wages?

Lucas has quickly become a firm favourite at Tottenham in recent times. And over on Twitter, the Spurs fans were delighted with his performance as well.

Here, then, is how some Tottenham fans reacted to the performance of Lucas Moura against Morecambe today.
