Tottenham should recall Lucas Moura against Olympiacos

Tottenham travel to Greek club Olympiacos on Wednesday in the Champions League and it’s important they start well in the group stages.

Spurs finished as runners-up in last season’s elite European competition and would love another similar journey this year.

Mauricio Pochettino should look at potentially making a few changes for the mid-week fixture and he will need to exploit his squad this campaign.

Lucas Moura is someone that should be recalled to the starting XI and he should perhaps feel like he’s got something to prove.

The 27-year-old has had a mixed start to the new campaign and he could do with reminding everyone of his immense qualities against Olympiacos.

Moura was given just a five-minute cameo at the weekend in the win over Crystal Palace, while in the previous fixture he was an unused substitute against rivals Arsenal.


The Brazilian attacker has work to do to get back into Pochettino’s good books and a big Champions League performance would work.

He will have great memories of the competition, as he scored a remarkable hat-trick against Ajax last season in the semi-finals.

The £23million (BBC) speed machine netted 15 times across all competition last season and he brings a real dynamism to the attack when he’s on form for Spurs.

It’s not been an ideal start to the campaign for the striker with two starts in five league games, but Wednesday could be the perfect time for him to kickstart his season.
