The Tottenham Hotspur winger has a bit-part role this season.
The Spurs manager gave Lucas a five-minute cameo in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Sheffield United in North London.
Thing is, Tottenham had needed a goal for about 15 minutes after George Baldock's equaliser in the final quarter.
And yet, Pochettino refused to call on the Brazilian - who fired his team into a Champions League final in May - until it was effectively too late.
His heroics in Amsterdam toward the end of last season mean that Lucas is such a popular figure among fans of the Lilywhites, but the Argentine needs a bit more convincing.
The former Paris Saint-Germain star has only managed 400 minutes of Premier League football - and only 88 of those have come since September.
And Tottenham fans on Twitter believe that the 27-year-old is better off leaving the club. Here's how they reacted to Pochettino giving him five minutes against the Blades:
If i was Lucas i’ll want out in January feel for him— DELLER THFC (@Leedeller1) November 9, 2019
Lucas gave Poch the best moment of his career and probably the best moment of my life as a fan. The way Poch has treated him since DAY ONE has been disgraceful. Hes got the hump cos he was proven wrong by Steve Hitchen.— Hamid (@HamidTHFC) November 9, 2019
I really hope Lucas leaves in january for his own career— meina⚘ (@SonxDele) November 9, 2019
