Tottenham Hotspur fans were left singing the praises of Lucas Moura after his performance in the 2-1 win at Newcastle United.
The Brazilian was named in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting line-up for the Premier League opener at St James’ Park and after hardly featuring last season following his switch from PSG, showed his quality with some neat touches.
Leading 2-1, Moura was replaced in the 68th minute by Mousa Dembele in a decision by Pochettino to try and protect the lead, following goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli.
Lucas was impressive during Tottenham’s pre-season tour of the USA, scoring two goals against AS Roma and has left the Spurs faithful excited about the impact he could have in the team this season.
Here’s a selection of reaction from some of your fellow fans.
And as I keep pointing out Lucas Moura is like a new signing because he never integrated last season. Spurs can win this title if everyone stays fit and motivated.

Lucas Moura- 7/10
Very impressive. Shows quick feet and a nice touch and was our most creative outlet at times. His movement in the final third needs some improvements though.

Lucas Moura looks dangerous when he runs with the ball & Dele is on ? #COYS
