Lucas Moura has won the Premier League Player of the Month award for August after a string of fine performances for Tottenham.
Moura, who has been given a run in the Spurs team under Mauricio Pochettino with Heung-Min Son on international duty with South Korea, has enjoyed his finest spell at the club since joining from Paris Saint-Germain in January.
The 26-year-old scored his first Premier League goal in Spurs’ 3-1 win over Fulham, and then put in a man-of-the-match performance as Pochettino’s side won 3-0 at Manchester United on Monday Night Football.
Moura scored twice in that game, and has now given Pochettino a selection headache for when Son returns to the squad following international duty.
