The fine form of Lucas Moura during August has resulted in him winning the Premier League Player of the Month award. It comes after the Brazilian scored 3 goals in August, with 2 of those coming in a Man of the Match performance as Spurs beat Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford. The other goal came against Fulham at Wembley, which was Moura’s first Premier League goal for Spurs. With the return of Heung-min Son from international duty, Mauricio Pochettino will have a real selection headache for the game against Liverpool given the form that Moura is in.

Davies grabs assist as Wales beat Ireland
A young Wales side blew away the Republic of Ireland last night, beating them 4-1 in Cardiff. Gareth Bale made the headlines for his sublime goal, and rightly so, but the assist from Ben Davies was not bad either. The Spurs left-back, who has established himself as first choice under Mauricio Pochettino, sent over a perfect cross-field pass to the Wales all-time top scorer, which he duly dispatched.
Pick that one out! 🚀
Gareth Bale strikes an absolute beauty for Wales to put them 2 up! 🏴

Like many of his teammates, Davies had a solid game for his country. Next up for Ryan Giggs’ side is Denmark on Sunday, a game which Christian Eriksen will now be playing in.
A Danish side containing part-time and futsal players lost to Slovakia 3-0 on Wednesday but national team regulars like Eriksen and Kasper Schmeichel are expected to return for the Wales game. This is because a temporary arrangement has been made by the Danish FA and their player’s body for them to play on Sunday even though the dispute over commercial rights is still on-going.
Elsewhere Josh Onomah, who is currently on loan at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday, played 65 minutes for England under 21s against Holland last night. England drew 0-0, a result which keeps them top of their EURO 2019 qualification group.
Victor Wanyama will definitely not play for Kenya in their crucial AFCON qualifier against Ghana, despite training with the Spurs first-team today, much to the disappointment of coach Sebastien Migne.

He (Wanyama) has some difficulty with his knee and we cannot take riskbecause of his future career. It’s a huge problem because he is the captain and one of the best players in the team. He plays for Tottenham and that shows how much he is important. But what can I do? I cannot cry, I have to find a solution; I have to find another option.
Finally the Carabao Cup tie against Watford has been confirmed to be played at Stadium MK after the EFL ratified a request from the club to play the game in Milton Keynes due to Wembley being unavailable on the 25th September.
