Lucas Moura has vowed to Spurs fans that the players will keep soldiering on despite the disappointing result against Sheffield United and will look to put things right when they take on Everton this evening.
The defeat against the Blades has but ended any hopes that Tottenham had of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Defeat against Everton this evening will see them leapfrog Spurs and push the Lilywhites into the bottom half of the table.
Jose Mourinho said ahead of the match that he is looking for a response from his players (Football.London) and Moura has now insisted that the players are viewing this evening’s clash as an opportunity to get back to winning ways.
He told the club’s official website: “We have to see Everton as another opportunity.
“We know it’s really hard for us now, the situation is difficult, but it’s not impossible.
“We will fight, we will give our best – and that’s the minimum we need to do.”
Moura was at the centre of a controversial incident at Bramall Lane as Spurs had Harry Kane’s equaliser ruled out as VAR adjudged that the ball had hit the Brazilian’s arm.
The decision has been heavily criticised over the last few days and Moura admitted that he was puzzled by the call.
However, he claimed that the team needed to keep going after the decision went against them.
The winger added: “We started well, and their first goal was a big knock, but that’s football.
“I don’t have the words to explain what happened. We knew it was very important and it puts us in a very difficult situation.
“I don’t know what to say, but we need to keep going, to keep working until the end.
“We tried, they played well, three goals… it’s difficult. We know we need to improve and as I said, we have to keep going.”
Spurs Web Opinion
The message coming out of the Spurs camp ahead of the game seem to be positive. Hopefully, we see the players approaching the game against Everton with the right intensity and attitude.
Defeat against the Toffees could see us slip to eleventh place in the table, and put Jose and the team under a lot of pressure for the final five games of the seaosn.
