Tottenham saw off Crystal Palace in last night’s London-derby and threw themselves firmly back into contention for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
Gareth Bale and Harry Kane were both in sublime form and each helped themselves to a couple of goals apiece. Another player, Lucas Moura came in for some praise from the Twitter fan base, however.
It’s now three wins on the spin for Jose Mourinho’s team and when they’re in this sort of form they will be very difficult to stop – particularly when it comes to going forward.
Christian Benteke did equalise shortly before the interval but Tottenham produced some real quality in the second half to blow Roy Hodgson’s men away.
Moura, 28, helped Tottenham ensure a massive three points and in the process offered Mourinho a timely reminder of his quality.
The £80,000-a-week performer has started nine games in the top-flight this season, bagging nine goals in all competitions.
Bale and Kane might have shared the spotlight during last night’s win but Moura’s quality in and around the final third proved useful.
On this showing, some more starts should be coming and afterwards, supporters took to Twitter to rave about the Brazilian.
Lucas Moura's pressing is a joke

Lucas Moura produced another quality performance tonight.
We wouldn’t have been able to win so comfortably without his contributions all over the pitch.
