Carragher Hails ‘Difference Maker’ Lucas Moura
Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has hailed Lucas Moura as a potential ‘difference maker’ for Tottenham. The Brazilian joined the cub from PSG in January and scored two goals in a resounding 3- 0 win away at Manchester United on Monday night.
Playing as a second striker, Moura tormented the United defence. Speaking on the Monday Night Football programme, Carragher said that Moura adds something to this Spurs squad that they have lacked for some time.
“I said before the game, rightly or wrongly, that they have lacked pace and Lucas Moura can now give them that. We never saw that pace from Lucas Moura last season but the third goal was a wow moment. It was almost a Thierry Henry moment when he just burst past people and runs through.
“He could be the difference maker to take this Spurs team to another level. They’ve always had top players but I’ve always felt they lacked one more special player like when they had Gareth Bale at the club. Since Bale they’ve never had anyone who can really scare people. Maybe he is that man.
“It’s one game so let’s see going forward but in that position where he plays just off Harry Kane, he can really cause problems, and that could be the difference to take Spurs to another level and win big away games. That’s what they have to do if they want to go to that other level.”
