Lucas Moura’s emphatic strike gives Spurs early lead

Lucas Moura did the work to give Tottenham Hotspur an early lead in its high-intensity visit to Wolves at the Molineux Stadium.

The 27-year-old Brazilian dribbled through and past defenders in the Wolves box, then produced a vicious strike that left Rui Patricio pawing at oxygen.

The 1-0 lead would last to halftime despite some promise from hosts Wolves, and that’s the same score line in Manchester.

It’s a controversial one, as David De Gea failed in a bid to push away a corner while taking a hand to the face from Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The ref saw nothing in it, and VAR saw no clear and obvious error after the ball skipped off Victor Lindelof and into the United goal.

What do you think? Fair play or VAR bungle?
