Lucas Moura provided the perfect response to being left of the Tottenham team to play Manchester City on Saturday evening.
The Brazilian, who netted that famous hat-trick against Ajax in the Champions League semi-final back in may, was surprisingly on the bench against the champions, with Mauricio Pochettino opting to start with Christian Eriksen in his place, although many thought it would be Erik Lamela sacrificed for the Dane.
But Moura, like he has done in a host of away games against the Premier League’s top-six in the past 12 months, made the difference for Tottenham, heading home Lamela’s 56th minute corner just 19 seconds after coming on to earn Pochettino’s men an unlikely draw at the Etihad, in what proved to be the fifth fastest goal as a substitute in Premier League history.
And after notching his first of the campaign and 17th in Spurs colours, the Brazilian international took to Twitter. You can see his humorous response below.
