Manchester City won the League Cup for a record-equalling fourth time in succession after beating Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 on Sunday.
A number of Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to discuss Lucas Moura’s display against Pep Guardiola’s side.
Aymeric Laporte scored the only goal in the closing stages of the match to lead the club to the trophy.
Many Spurs fans were impressed with the Brazilian’s performance, with some even claiming he was their best player.
City were clearly the better sides of the two. However, after the break Spurs did look a lot more threatening going forward, especially on the counter-attack.
Lucas was superb and did cause a lot of problems. He was replaced by Gareth Bale in the 67th minute, and many fans felt that was a wrong decision taken by Ryan Mason.
Harry Kane, who was doubtful for this game, made a minimal impact but there were poor performances from other players as well. Son Heung-min was in tears on the pitch after the final whistle.
Here are some of the best reactions from Spurs fans on Twitter:

Moura off? Spurs’ best player for me…

Moment Lucas Moura was subbed for Bale you know they will play with 10 men. Lucas was their best player moving and causing City problems and also defending well.
