Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has admitted that Lucas Moura needs a rest.
The club attacker had started in six games in a row prior to the Lilywhites clash against Fulham, when Dele Alli replaced him in the first-team squad.
“The previous two matches it was Lucas that was starting and he needs a rest,” Mourinho said.
“We could feel him coming in the last 20 minutes could give elevation to the team.
“The squad is working really well, it is a normal situation to give players time, we had guys on the bench, we have a good squad and I have to use it because it is very hard.”
