Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to stats that have emerged surrounding Lucas Moura and his efforts this season.

Moura hasn’t had a lot of success in front of goal this term, failing to find the back of the net in any of the nine games that he has played. But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been handy to Spurs in other ways.

How many points did Tottenham gain in the following seasons? First up: 2020/21

Using stats from WhoScored, Spurs-based Twitter account @thespursweb revealed that the Brazilian, who has won 25 of his 36 aerial duels this season (69.4%), has won more headers than the likes of Virgil van Dijk (65%), Ruben Dias (60.9%) and Raphael Varane (66.7%).

It was a stat that seemed to leave a number of Spurs fans impressed when they saw it online:

“He is an absolute joke in the air.”

“It’s weirdly a great attribute to have, and I’ve noticed it be useful many times.”
“He’s the only Spur that can actually get off the ground to win a ball”
“That beautiful bald head of his is capable of special things”
“Crazy athletic”
“For his height he’s very good in the air”

Should Spurs sell Moura?





It’s certainly not something you’d associate with Moura, especially as he has only scored eight goals with his head in his career (as per Transfermarkt), but maybe he could use these skills to be more effective in the opposition box moving forward.
