Lucas Moura insists Spurs will score goals in spite of injury setbacks
Tottenham Hotspur winger Lucas Moura believes that Spurs will get back to scoring ways soon. The Brazilian is insistent that these goals will help the team stay on track for the season, according to the Mirror.
The North London side are facing a crisis in attack following the injuries to Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min. Both the players are long-term casualties and are not expected to return to action anytime soon.
The absence of the attacking stalwarts was apparent as Tottenham failed to score against Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The match saw Moura partner Dele Alli up front in a makeshift attack.
Speaking about the situation, Moura stated that every team has such problems and Spurs cannot cry about it.
Belief in himself and his teammates
He admitted his confidence in the team’s quality to overturn the deficit in the second leg at Leipzig in March while also promising to give his best as a goalscorer. Moura admitted that the result was not to their liking although Spurs did well in the system they chose at play, while he also insisted that the tie was far from over.
“We can turn it around, the game is not over”
Admitting that Tottenham did not make the most of their opportunities, the 27-year-old believes that his side will prepare well and go get the job done at the Red Bull Arena. He was adamant that anything can happen in football and that the tie is still not over. He also went on to reiterate his faith in himself and his teammates.
“I believe in myself. I believe in my team-mates.”
Moura’s sentiments were also echoed by his teammate Toby Alderweireld.
