Lucas Moura wants Jose Mourinho to persist with the “front foot football” that has got them to 100 goals this season.
For the second home game in a row, Tottenham scored four on Sunday night to become only the second team from Europe’s top five leagues to reach three figures behind Bayern Munich.
Admittedly, almost half of those have come from the club’s free-scoring Europa League and FA Cup campaigns.
But with Heung-min Son and Harry Kane establishing themselves as the most successful partnership in Premier League history and Gareth Bale finally flying, Moura hopes that a very different Spurs can finish the season than the one which simply used to park the bus and rely on counter-attacks.
“For me, we have unbelievable players, we have creative players and we need to keep the ball to dictate games,” Moura said.
“It’s a big, big pleasure for me to play with these players and also because they are very good guys.
“I’m so happy, I’m so proud to be part of this team and I feel very comfortable playing with them.
“The most important thing is we make use of these players in every game. We have so much quality and if we keep the ball and attack, we lessen the risk of teams coming at us and they can win the game for us.
“But I think the main thing was the mentality.
“We just needed to have the belief in ourselves. We needed to know how good we are because we have terrific players, a very good squad and the quality in the Premier League to win games.
“When we realise that and we have confidence we are able to dominate games. We just need to keep going in this way.”
If they do – at a time when many of their rivals are stuttering – a late grab for a top four place is very much up for grabs.
“It’s not easy when there are a few teams in front of us but we need to trust ourselves,” Moura said.
“We can achieve this objective. But we need to think step by step, game by game.
“But if we play like we did against Palace, of course we can finish in the top four. And that’s the objective.”
