For someone who does not boast a lot of height, Lucas Moura certainly has a spring in his step when it comes to challenging for headers.
The little Brazilian regularly wins his duels in the air and it was no different against Man City yesterday evening, as he rose highest in the box to nod home.
This came just 19 seconds after the winger was subbed on by Pochettino, talk about an instant impact!
What made the goal all the sweeter in hindsight was that Moura actually beat ex-Spurs defender, Kyle Walker, to the ball, making for an incredible photo of them both at full height.
Spurs fans certainly loved this one…
