Spurs winger, Lucas Moura celebrated his first Premier League goal for the North-London side in their 3-1 victory over Fulham.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said, “Lucas was from day one with us when we started pre-season which is an advantage compared to the players that arrived late and today I think he was very good, he deserves a lot of praise. He scored but more importantly he worked very hard for the team without the ball and that is always important.”

The former PSG winger used his Twitter profile to showcase his joy after bagging his first Premier League goal for Spurs. The midfielder whipped a stunning left-footed finish past the outstretched Fabri after the ball cannoned off the post and bulged into the Wembley net, sending the Tottenham fans into raptures.
Moura is looking to cement a place in the Spurs starting line-up this season after his bit-part role last term, but the Brazilian has got off to the best possible start this campaign. The tricky attacking midfielder donned his usual celebration of pointing to the heavens and looking up to the skies to praise God and give thanks.
The 26-year-old is a devout Christian and speaks very openly about his faith and how he became to be a follower of Jesus.
In Moura, Spurs have a typical winger on their hands who has the ability to help guide the London outfit to the very top, the question is, will he get the game time he needs to flourish under Pochettino?
