Lucas on Chelsea: ‘I’ve been waiting for this kind of match’

Matt Stead

Tottenham winger Lucas Moura is looking forward to facing Chelsea on Sunday.

Spurs travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on Sunday in a game that will have significant ramifications on the race to finish in the top four.

Tottenham currently occupy that final Champions League qualification spot, with the north London side enjoying a five-point gap to Chelsea.

A victory over, or even a draw against their bitter rivals would strengthen their hopes in the Premier League, and Lucas is awaiting a closely-fought match.

“It’s true, it’s a big game and I can’t wait for it,” Lucas told the club’s official website. “I’m excited to be around, to hopefully be involved and I believe firmly that we can win.

“This year we are very good – we’ve had great games against Manchester United, Arsenal and even against Juventus over the two matches, so I’m sure we can produce a great game against Chelsea also because I think we are very, very talented.

“I’ve been waiting for this kind of match. The Premier League is the best league in the world and I’m happy to be here and to hopefully be involved in a London derby like this. It’s a big, big match, I’m excited for it and this week we will all prepare very well for it.”
