Tottenham fans were left perplexed on Twitter after Lucas Moura claimed that no Spurs players have asked to leave the club.

Mauricio Pochettino's side are currently sitting in the bottom half of the Premier League table, and are slowly dragging in the points in the Champions League.

 

Before a ball was kicked this season, playmaker Christian Eriksen expressed a desire to leave the club to seek a 'new challenge, as quoted by The Guardian.

But according to Moura, he thinks 'nobody' has said anything about wanting to leave Spurs, as quoted by Football.London.

It has resulted in some Spurs fans shutting down Moura and making it clear that he simply isn't telling the truth.

Moura, who joined Spurs during the January 2018 transfer window for £23 million [BBC Sport], has been someone who has hardly featured for Mauricio Pochettino in these recent weeks.

Even though he is seemingly one of the most honest and underappreciated players, he is struggling to earn starts, even though players like Eriksen, who have asked to leave, continue to find themselves back in the starting XI.

Anyhow, it is fair to say that the Spurs faithful didn't agree at all with what Moura said in regards to his teammates and their current or previous desires. 

Here is a selection of Tottenham fans on Twitter reacting to Moura's comments about players not wanting to leave:
