Tottenham should start Lucas Moura against Liverpool

Tottenham travel to Liverpool on Sunday in the Premier League and they will be underdogs to get a result at Anfield.

Spurs were beaten by 2-1 scorelines in both league meetings against Liverpool last season, as well as losing the Champions League final to them.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have had some poor results of late and it means they sit seventh in the league table, while their upcoming opponents sit top of the division 13 points above them.

But the North London club did beat Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League group stages during midweek and do have the quality to cause problems if they take their A-game to Merseyside.

It may be hard for Pochettino to make changes to his XI from the European victory, but attacker Lucas Moura should be recalled.

Moura has started just one of the last six league matches, which was last weekend in the 1-1 draw against Watford.

 

The Brazilian speed machine has just two goals in 10 games across all competitions this season and certainly hasn’t been anywhere near his best.

But he scored on the trip to Anfield last season and his lightning pace is exactly the type of weapon that can penetrate Liverpool.

Moura has shown in the past he’s a man that can turn up in elite games and would be the smarter option to play at Anfield.

The 27-year-old has immense competition in the final third for a starting position, but he’s got the quality to be the most dangerous at the weekend.
