Lucas Moura scored on his return from injury to help Tottenham’s Under-21 team defeat Arsenal 2-1.
Injuries have hampered the Brazilian’s season, and he has only made 11 appearances for the senior team this year, playing 266 minutes in total.
He made a comeback from injury and featured in their U21 game against arch rivals Arsenal, contributing straight away to help them to a 2-1 victory.
Amario Cozier-Duberry gave Arsenal the lead before Moura tied the score for Spurs with a tidy finish from close range.
Moura was replaced by Nile John at halftime, and at the hour mark, John scored Tottenham’s second goal to make it 2-1, which proved to be the game-winning goal.

Lucas converts from close range to equalise for our Under-21s just five minutes after the hosts went in front.
