Tottenham’s Under-21s registered a 2-1 win over rivals Arsenal, which featured Lucas Moura who scored on his return from injury. The Brazilian has made only 11 appearances for the senior side this season, playing just 266 minutes of football. Moura was on hand to equalise for SpursGetty It is his first goal for the club this seasonGetty Much of Moura’s campaign has been impacted by a tendon issue and he was last in action back in November. However, he has now made his return for the club, making an instant impact for the Under-21s against their north London rivals. Following Amario Cozier-Duberry’s opener for the Gunners, Moura netted an equaliser for Spurs in the Premier League 2 Division 1. It is his first contribution for the club this season, having failed to score or assist for the senior side so far in the current campaign. His Spurs teammate and fellow Brazilian forward Richarlison made an appearance in the stands at Boreham Wood to show his support. He was seen holding a fan-made sign that translated to: “Lucas could you give me your shirt?” Moura’s teammate and fellow Brazilian Richarlison showed his support at the matchGetty John put Spurs ahead after coming on for MouraGetty Most read in Football Alli 'hushes' Besiktas fans as ex-Tottenham ace ends goal drought in all-action display Caicedo pleads with Brighton to let him leave on Instagram amid Arsenal and Chelsea bids Caicedo wants to leave Brighton amid failed Arsenal bid, Newcastle agree £45m Gordon deal Liverpool and Chelsea transfer interest in Sheffield United star confirmed by boss Incoming Everton boss Dyche urged to sign West Ham wantaway star as Gordon replacement Kieran Tierney could leave Arsenal as Gunners linked with highly-rated Dortmund target Nile John replaced Moura at the break and the midfielder fired in a second just after the hour mark to give Tottenham the win. Moura’s future at Spurs is uncertain with the signing of Arnaut Danjuma set to limit his opportunities further. The Dutchman has joined on loan from Villarreal until the end of the season, with Antonio Conte’s side beating Everton, who have been linked to Moura as well, to his signature. Danjuma could make his first appearance for the club in their FA Cup trip to Preston on Saturday. Conte’s assistant Cristian Stellini confirmed he is available for the tie, having made two previous appearances in the competition during his time at Bournemouth. @LucasMoura7 is on the scoresheet!
