Tottenham: Lucas Moura remains out vs Leicester – Football Transfer Tavern

  • September 17, 2022

Tottenham Hotspur have suffered an injury blow after Antonio Conte confirmed that Lucas Moura remains sidelined for this weekend’s Premier League game vs Leicester City.
The Lilywhites were on the receiving end of a shock 2-0 defeat to Sporting in the Champions League during midweek so will be hoping to put things right when they host Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes on Saturday.

The 30-year-old Brazilian has been ruled out of action since the end of August with a calf injury sustained against Chelsea, and after a fresh update, it sounds as if supporters won’t be seeing him until after the international break.
Speaking to SPURSPLAY after training on Thursday, Conte revealed that Moura, once again, will not be available for selection when his side take on Leicester.
As quoted by Tottenham’s official website, he said:
“Yes, only Lucas is out. The other players are all available for Leicester.”

Whilst Moura has fallen down the pecking order following the arrivals of Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison, he is still a hugely effective player and it will be a blow for Conte to not have him at his disposal.
The Brazilian, dubbed a ‘ridiculous’ player by sports journalist Josh Bunting, netted eight goals and registered six assists in all competitions last season (Transfermarkt), showing the attacking contribution he can make in the final third.

Moura would have by no means been named in Spurs’ starting XI this weekend, but he would have still provided the boss with an excellent option from the bench which will no doubt be missed by the Italian.
