Lucas Moura will always be a popular figure with the Tottenham faithful for that sensational second-half hat-trick against Ajax last season – but his performance against Manchester United last night left them somewhat angry with him.
The Brazilian winger struggled for opportunities under Mauricio Pochettino, but has started three of the previous four matches since Jose Mourinho became Head Coach. Moura scored against West Ham before providing an assist for Harry Kane against Olympiacos four days later, but his showing at Old Trafford was poor – and Spurs fans were far from happy with it.
Some of those took to social media to show their frustration and you can see some of the best tweets below.
Seriously last time lucas Moura played well was probably the semi final massive passenger last night ☹️

I can’t get over Lucas Moura. The guys ridiculously quick and a very good dribbler, he’s up against Ashley Young who’s gash on a good day, yet didn’t try take him on once

Is there any player that has ever lived off one game more than Lucas Moura has?? Genuine question.
