Tottenham need to give Lucas Moura more opportunities.
Harry Kane produced a complete striker’s performance in England’s victory over Bulgaria.
Kane provided three assists in a 6-0 win, as well as scoring a goal himself.
For Tottenham this season Kane only has one assist in 10 appearances in all competitions, so is Mauricio Pochettino missing a trick?
One of the reasons Kane was so effective for England was that Raheem Sterling possessed such a goal threat in attack himself.
Bulgaria could not focus solely on Kane, and the Tottenham star was able to drop deeper, knowing that Sterling could exploit the forward areas.
Tottenham have a player like this, but inexplicably have not been playing him.
Last season’s Champions League semi-final hat-trick hero Lucas Moura has been selected to start only two Premier League games.
This was supposed to be a season for Lucas to kick on, but he is not being given a fair opportunity to do so.
Mauricio Pochettino is reluctant to play him in the same team as Kane, despite there being such an obvious upside of having the prolific pair line up together.
Kane can help Lucas and the Brazilian can benefit the England star too, helping him develop a more creative side of his game that he showed last night.
With Tottenham struggling for form, and lining up against a brittle Watford side this weekend, it’s time for Mauricio Pochettino to be bolder.
