Erik Lamela scored a superb hat-trick to ensure Tottenham topped Europa League Group J in style with a convincing victory over Monaco.

The Argentine playmaker, 23, expertly placed all three of his goals beyond visiting keeper Danijel Subasic, who had a night to forget.

Monaco's consolation came when Stephan El Shaarawy curled in from 25 yards.

But Tom Carroll's neat, close-range finish rounded off another superb display by Mauricio Pochettino's side.
