Tottenham fans have praised the performance of winger Lucas Moura after his side’s 1-0 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday evening.
A goal from Roberto Firmino ensured that the visitors took all three points back to Merseyside and extended Spurs’ winless run in all competitions to four games, as per Fotmob.
Moura played the full 90 minutes but was unable to conjure up any major opportunities for his side, despite his contributions. He became a cult hero for Spurs after his late winner during his team’s 3-2 win against Ajax in last season’s Champions League semi-final. His teammate Christian Eriksen suggested that he deserves his own statue, as per Goal (via Sporting News).
Got to say, Lucas Moura was brilliant today. Ran his socks off and worked relentlessly, often screaming for the ball even when under pressure. Had his fair share of criticism this season and rightly so, but turned up today in abundance. #COYS

💯 Deserves more respect

Irritates me the slander he gets. He can be frustrating I understand that, but he’s always looking to get forward, deserves more respect, I’m not for slandering players but I don’t see the same energy for Alli who in my opinion hasn’t been great for weeks now.
