Carlos Vinicius has admitted his delight at seeing Tottenham Hotspur get back to winning ways on Sunday despite being an unused substitute for the game.

It was a much-needed three points for Jose Mourinho’s men against West Brom on the back of three straight defeats against Liverpool, Brighton and Chelsea.

Harry Kane returned from injury to take his place in the starting eleven and the England captain certainly made his presence felt, getting Spurs’ first goal and playing a key part in the build-up to the second in the 2-0 win.

Kane’s return to the side meant that there was no place for Vinicius, who started the 1-0 defeat against Chelsea on Thursday.

However, the 25-year-old’s compatriot, Lucas Moura was handed a rare start and the former PSG man was one of Spurs’ best players on Sunday, assisting Son for the home side’s second goal.

Moura took to Instagram after the game to praise the North Londoners’ performance and Vinicius posted a comment on the winger’s post which read: “Come on Spurs”.

It would have been quite easy for someone in Vinicius’ position to be frustrated at the lack of opportunities. However, the striker has shown a fantastic attitude during his time at the club so far as he always seems to give his all when he gets on to the pitch.
