Tottenham Hotspur experienced another frustrating outing in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon after losing 2-1 at top of the table Liverpool.

Despite taking an early lead through Harry Kane, Spurs were once again unable to hold onto their advantage and left Merseyside pointless after conceding two goals which came as a result of errors from both full-backs.

Lucas Moura has found himself in and out of Mauricio Pochettino’s starting eleven this season and had to make do with a seven minute cameo at Anfield when he replaced Serge Aurier.

The Brazilian has revealed to the media in his homeland that the squad remain together despite the poor start to the new season which has seen them drop to eleventh in the table.

Moura has called for unity and insists that the focus is on reversing the current slide.

“Inside the locker room, there’s nothing. The locker room is normal, the atmosphere has always been very good, the group is very united,” Moura told ESPN Brasil following the loss to Liverpool.

“This matter of speculation about any player wanting to quit is hard to answer. I think it’s personal for each one. I know nothing was leaked in the locker room, nobody said anything about wanting to leave. I think the atmosphere is very good.”

He added: “The proof that the atmosphere is good was the good game we played today, the last game was very good in the Champions League, now we were able to play against Liverpool.

“Of course, the moment isn’t the best, the last irregular results, but it’s part of football. We have to stay together and focus on working to reverse this situation.”   

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino spoke last month that he felt his squad was unsettled with some of his players having a different agenda (BBC).
