Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern were absolutely shocked by manager Mauricio Pochettino’s decision to leave new signing, Lucas Moura, on the bench last night as the club lost 2-1 to Juventus in the Champions League.

Lucas Moura signed for Spurs in the January transfer window but has so far has been limited to appearances in the FA Cup.
