Lucas Moura enjoys surprising defenders in the air

4

Tottenham forward Lucas Moura has admitted that he likes to see people be surprised by his ability in the air after the little Brazilian thundered home the team’s second goal in Sunday’s 3-0 victory against Crystal Palace.

Lucas was superb during the match, he also got assists for the other two goals, but it was his nod that really stole the show. He threw every inch of his 5’9 frame towards the ball and went straight through the high defender Joachim Andersen on his way to nod the ball home.

It was not the first nod Lucas made for Spurs, and he promised it would not be his last either.

“It was crazy,” Lucas told Spurs TV about his goal. “I talked to Emerson before the game and said to him, ‘if you look at me when I come, just put the ball to the second post, I’m coming, I’m jumping.

“It’s another part of my character. I love to jump and sometimes people think I’m small and I will not jump, but I jumped and when I saw the ball in the air I just said in my head, ‘I’m going to jump “I score goals”. That’s all. I’m very happy to help the team. It’s always a pleasure to score goals. A good day.

“It was another solid performance. We are very happy. We have to continue in this way and work hard. We started the match a bit slowly, but we were stable. Then, after the first goal, it started to develop. I think it was a fantastic achievement. “

Lucas was then asked about his tendency to get involved with his team when it matters most, and he admitted that he enjoys the responsibility.

“It’s my style, my way of playing, of always trying to use my pace and accelerate the game, trying to find solutions,” he continued.

“Then we have players with quality, I think we as a team improve a lot. Every game we improve. I am very happy, very positive for the rest of the season.”
