Some Tottenham fans on social media want to see Carlos Vinicius handed more opportunities after the striker netted a hat-trick in Spurs’ 5-0 win over Marine yesterday.
Most of the Brazilian’s minutes this season have come in the Europa League, with the striker scoring three and getting three assists in the group stage of the competition.
The 25-year-old has only made two appearances in the Premier League so far, coming on as a late substitute on both occasions.
He was handed a rare opportunity against Marine yesterday and certainly took it with both hands. Not only did Vinicius lead the line expertly but he once again proved that he knows where the back of the net is.
While the quality of the opposition was sub-par, the striker certainly did not do any harm to his chances of getting more game time in the future.
Some Spurs fans are social media admitted that they want to see more of Vinicius on the back of his Man of the Match display on Sunday.
Well deserved. Has to be utilised more often. His returns in the matches he’s been involved in have been outstanding.

Needs more mins, want to see him develop more

It’s so great seeing things work out for Vinicius. I’ve warmed to him ever since his introductory video with Moura.
He’s shown more quality than Soldado & Janssen ever did.

This is what a reserve striker needs to do to catch the eye, bang in goals galore when given a chance. It's the currency of playing time for forwards. pic.twitter.com/AtuCv2zUIH

Takeaways? Vinicius is class. Needs to play more.
Dele needs to be given more chances.
Hart makes me nervous, almost always.

There's a player in Vinicius, just needs to sort out his first touch and he'll be a decent front man

Vinicius – needs more games as he's always impressed me when I've seen him.

I know it’s really low opposition but Vinicius really needs to be starting more games for us man, so clinical

Vinicius needs to play more. I know its Marine, but he's scored loads of goals this season.

Spurs Web Opinion
While Vinicius is going to continue to play second fiddle to Kane, I must admit that I expected Mourinho to use both strikers together more often than he has. I believe the Brazilian could be a useful asset to bring on if we are coming up against a low block as he can pin defenders back and allow Kane more space to get on the ball.
