Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting on Twitter to Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to give Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela game time over Lucas Moura.
The January signing from PSG was an unused substitute during the 2-0 win against Watford at Wembley to the frustration of some sections of the Tottenham support. Granted, Moussa Sissoko operates in a different position to the Brazilian, but the former Newcastle man has had plenty of opportunities to prove his worth at Spurs and missed a sitter against the Hornets.
Lucas Moura has had limited game time in recent weeks, yet has shown in his cameo performances exactly what he can bring to the team. Pace, trickery and looks to attack defenders.
Personally, I was frustrated with Lamela yet again. He’s trying to hold onto the ball for far too long when simple passes are on to team-mates. Anyhow, here’s a selection of thoughts from your fellow fans.
Lucas Moura needs to start ahead of Lamela next season as well, Lamela literally just does loads of little tricks but doesn’t facking pass the ball!

Lucas Moura sees Shitsoko come on and blaze it over whilst sitting there wondering what he needs to do to play.

And still we play Sissoko???? Sigh ? Why?! Can somebody @SpursOfficial go and give Lucas Moura a hug

Happy with the 3 points. What I’m not happy about is Sissoko coming on ahead of Lucas Moura. He’s a donkey. Proved that with non existent finish. Guys a clown. Lucas Moura will be wasted and then be sold and show what he can do when he plays for a manager that has faith in him ?

Imagine being Lucas Moura and seeing Lamela and Sissoko come on before you. You'd have to start questioning whether you should just pack it in.

Moussa Sissoko gets game time, yet Lucas Moura is an unused substitute?
