English Premier League: Lucas Moura (84') Manchester United 0-3 Tottenham
Tottenham forward Lucas Moura has said the club should have ended their 10-year trophy drought by now -- but insists everything is in place for them to finally win.
Spurs have finished in the Premier League's top three in each of the past three seasons, while they also reached the FA Cup semifinal in the previous two campaigns as well as the League Cup final in 2015. However, they are without a piece of major silverware since 2008.
And Moura, whose performances in the early part of the campaign saw him win the Player of the Month award for August, believes the club is primed to win a trophy -- and he is determined to deliver for the supporters.
"Winning a trophy is missing," Moura, 26, told ESPN Brazil. "Because the infrastructure and the players are there. We should have a trophy for the fans.
"It is my objective this season and I really believe in this. When I first came here, before signing, I was blown away -- I was presented and then we were brilliant for 90 minutes in the 2-0 victory over Manchester United.
"The team was great again this season to win 3-0 and all of this makes me believe more in the team and we should believe we can win a trophy."
Meanwhile, Moura also admits the players are excited to play at the new stadium -- but have transformed Wembley into their home.
Saturday's clash with Liverpool was supposed to be the unveiling of the new White Hart Lane, but this has now since been delayed.
"We're not disappointed, but we are anxious to get to know the stadium," Moura said. "From what we've seen in the pictures, it will be very modern and big.
"But it won't interfere with our preparation for the Liverpool game, nor our mentality or focus. We have adapted to Wembley, the fans back the team there and it has become our home.
"Everything is in place for us to have a great game against Liverpool."Comments
