Jose Mourinho has spoken up on Lucas Moura’s speed, following Tottenham’s win over Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Spurs beat 4 – 1 the Premier Leauge rivals, with Moura helping to his side to score the first goal of the night.

“I believe some of the guys had a very, very good match and Lucas in this position gives us a lot of acceleration, a change of speed,” Mourinho said.

“He’s very good under pressure and is good against teams like Palace, who are very compact in two lines of four.

“He can turn, he can dribble, he can beat people and break a little bit of tight organisations. I’m happy with him.”
