Suara.com – Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte believes Lucas Moura can still continue to develop despite his phenomenal appearance when Spurs beat Crystal Palace 3-0 in the London Derby, in the 2021/2022 Premier League Boxing Day match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Sunday (12/26/2021) night WIB.
The Brazilian winger was fully involved in Tottenham’s three-goal win against Palace.
He scored Tottenham’s second goal and provided assists for Harry Kane’s opener and Son Heung-min’s closing goal.
“Lucas is an important player for us, no doubt,” Conte said on the club’s official website, Monday (12/27/2021).

“He has a lot of quality, is good at first controlling against a goal, is good at creating assists and lives in the opponent’s penalty box because he has the accuracy of headings.”
“I am happy because he is performing very well and he must continue to do all of this. He can still continue to grow. He can still do better than this, even more great,” the Italian coach said.
Signed from Paris Saint-Germain in the January 2018 transfer window, Lucas Moura experienced a relatively ups and downs career with Tottenham.
His first full season in 2018/2019, Lucas became one of Mauricio Pochettino’s mainstays who signed him at that time and was able to score 15 goals in 49 appearances in all competitions.
However, following the sacking of Pochettino, Lucas was more likely to come off the bench during the Jose Mourinho era.
