Tottenham Hotspur struggled to make chances today against Brighton in the Premier League and barely registered a meaningful shot on target all game in the 3-0 loss.
However, within minutes of coming on in the second half, Lucas Moura managed to get in behind and force a great save from Ryan in the Brighton goal.
How did he do this? Simple. Pace, drive, and movement! Moura was probably the first Spurs player to actually make a run in the second 45.
With Tottenham not looking like a threat going forward anymore and too many players dropping consistently poor performances, I do not understand what Moura is doing on the bench week in week out.
This is the man who got a brace away to Man United and a hat-trick in Amsterdam. He has the ability and skill to single-handedly unlock defences.
While he can sometimes fall stale when he starts games, he has rarely been given an extended run in the starting XI.
The time is now.
