Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that deadline day signing Lucas Moura is fit and ready to play his debut in the north London derby against Arsenal.
However, he did also add a word of caution, saying that the £25million signing was “feeling his legs”.
Pochettino was talking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the huge game on Saturday and it got Tottenham fans excited.
They haven’t seen their new man on the pitch yet and think that he could be a real impact player in the north London derby.
Here are the best reactions from Tottenham fans ahead of the big game:
I think Moura could be a good impact player in Saturday.

My prediction is he won't be in the starting line-up rather he will be sitting in the subs,might be introduce after 60 minutes or 70 minutes

Tottenham will leapfrog Liverpool and Chelsea into third place in the league with a win against their bitter rivals.
They’ll also deal a potentially fatal blow to Arsenal, who are looking like missing out on the top four for the second consecutive season.
However, a defeat for Spurs would flip everything around with competition for the Champions League places extremely high this season.
The game kicks off at 12.30pm and is being shown on BT Sports.
