After a summer transfer window that saw the likes of Giovani Lo Celso, Ryan Sessegnon and Tanguy Ndombele arrive at Tottenham Hotspur, fans were delighted at the business done by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy ahead of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.
The 2018/19 season was one of considerable progress for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, as they reached the 2019 Champions League final and developed as domestic contenders once again in the Premier League.
Despite a summer transfer window that was highly successful for the north London outfit, Pochettino simply must persist in his faith towards Brazilian winger Lucas Moura, who has shown time and time again that he has the potential to be a regular starter in the Tottenham first-choice XI, despite fierce competition from the likes of Heung-min Son, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in the attacking slots for Pochettino.
After scoring a historic hat-trick in the Champions League semi-final against Ajax to send Spurs to the final of Europe’s premier club competition, Moura was then devastatingly dropped at the expense of Harry Kane for the final against Liverpool – a game that Pochettino’s would go on to lose 1-0.
Moura has, yet again, fallen from the preferences of Pochettino, this time in the 2019/20 Premier League campaign, but if Spurs are to truly utilise the extent of their squad depth alongside aiming to make another run in Europe, a player such as Moura possesses not only the ability but the undeniable work ethic that has been central to the success that Pochettino has achieved during his time in the capital.
There is no doubt that players such as Heung-min Son and Dele Alli possess world-class quality in the final third, but if Pochettino is able to trust Moura with a starting berth, both domestically and in Europe, then this could be a player capable of propelling Spurs to new heights in their pursuit of a first trophy in the Argentine’s managerial era in north London.
