Lucas Moura has outlined his plans to help Tottenham end their long trophy drought and wants to break back into the top four this season.

Tottenham have endured a mixed Premier League campaign under Nuno Espirito Santo so far recording five wins and three defeats, although they impressed yesterday in a 3-2 victory over Newcastle.

Spurs know they must find consistency soon or face the consequence of missing out on Champions League football again, which would be for the third season in a row. 

Moura, who is yet to tally in the Premier League this season, wants to break back into the top four by the end of the campaign as Tottenham belong on the biggest stage.

He also spoke on the pressure of being surrounded by big players at a big club. PSG signed Moura for a then reported club-record fee of £35 million in 2013 which piled immense pressure on his shoulders to perform and deliver.

Moura told the Daily Mail: “When we have big players, big club, big investment, the pressure is big as well and now our situation when we speak about European competition is the Conference League.

“We want to win this competition, we will fight for this and we will fight in the Premier League to be in the top four and come back to Champions League because a club like Tottenham and the players we have, we need to think about this, we need to have this mentality and think about bigger things.

“The Champions League is our place and we will try for this.”

He added: “Everyone knows football is not all about money.

“Of course, it helps. But it will bring a lot of expectation because it means they can buy big players, big stars, and make some improvements in the club, the stadium, the training ground.

“So fans become excited because they want titles, they want to see the team winning trophies, winning the Champions League and it’s good to be involved with.

“Because you as a player have these expectations to win, to perform. It was a pleasure for me and that’s very normal for a footballer.

“It’s a good pressure. Football is about this, because when you are in a big club with big players around you, you have a big expectation from the fans and big pressure but it’s good. You feel that when you play and it’s why football is amazing.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

It has been far too long since Spurs last won a trophy, even more so now that the infrastructure is all in place.

Although it has been a tricky start to the season, hopefully, the club can build some momentum to put them in a good position to end that drought and also push for a top-four spot.
