Graham Roberts has taken the opportunity to praise Lucas Moura on Twitter by suggesting that the Brazilian helped to change the course of the game against Watford.

The introduction Lucas Moura at half-time in place of right-back Serge Aurier proved the catalyst for a much-improved performance from the home side in the second half.

Spurs looked the brighter during the opening quarter of the game with Heung-min Son going close on a couple of occasions, but it was the Hornets who broke the deadlock.

Craig Cathcart scored against Tottenham for the second time this season in what was a poorly defended set piece from Spurs and notably by goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

However, Moura helped to inject some pace and directness into the Spurs attack and helped to create more space in the final third of the pitch.

The returning Heung-min Son was also impressive, he has had a direct hand in six goals against Watford in the Premier League (five goals, one assist), against no other side has he been involved in more (also six v Southampton).

Here’s what Roberts had to say.
