Spurs ace Lucas Moura set to start at Rochdale

Lucas Moura is set for his first start for Tottenham against Rochdale in the FA Cup.

Tottenham's last trophy was the League Cup in 2008 – they beat Chelsea 2-1 after extra time – but the victorious manager Juande Ramos was axed just eight months later.

Now, though, the pressure is on Mauricio Pochettino to deliver a trophy, especially amid talk that some of his star players could be tempted to leave north London this summer if silverware remains elusive.

Pochettino is likely to give new £25million signing Lucas his first start at Rochdale, hinting that Harry Kane, who scored Tottenham's opener against Juve, could miss out because of injury.
