It started with a dull goalless draw in northern France and ended with drama and a flurry of goals at White Hart Lane. Thanks for keeping me company. You'll be hearing loads more about Erik Lamala's goal. But can he do it on the Premier League stage? Perhaps we'll find out on Sunday. Catch you soon.

Martin Ratcliff: Hugo Lloris' red card isn't a crisis. Michel Vorm is a more than capable back-up. I'm just surprised he didn't start tonight.

Gareth Beale: Vorm to get a game or two in the Europa League now - maybe Hugo was fed up travelling to the middle of nowhere on week nights!

Matt Donnelly: Harry Kane should definitely be in the England squad. He's no worse than Rob Green or Scott Carson...

And with that, Matt wins my tweet of the night.

Lille 0-0 Everton

Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard: Good point on the road in a tough match. Travelling Blues were incredible tonight!

Manager reaction

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras

Mauricio Pochettino talking on ITV4 about Erik Lamela's spectacular goal: "Yes, it was an unbelievable goal and I'm happy with the result and looking forward, but it's only three points."

On Harry Kane: "He's always in my plans, today he scored three goals, and I'm very happy with him."

On the result: "I'm not satisfied. For me the result is important but the last goal makes me unsatisfied. I saw it on TV and for me it wasn't a sending off. But the situation where we gave the player the chance to arrive one-on-one I am not happy about. I am unhappy about the last two or three minutes of the game. But I am happy with the three points."

Some people are just so hard to please...

Europa League round-up

Some big, big wins in the Europa League.

Borussia Monchengladbach battered Apollon Limassol 5-0 to climb off the foot of the Group A table. The rout was completed by a Thorgan Hazard effort in injury time.

Six goals in Austria as the hosts, FC Red Bull Salzburg, came out on top. Their 4-2 defeat of Dinamo Zagreb included an Alan Douglas Borges de Carvalho hat-trick inside an hour, and grants second-placed Salzburg a four point gap above Zagreb in Group D.

Former Juventus and Parma frontman Amauri's goal on the hour meant Torino saw off a spirited HJK Helsinki challenge - the Turin side's 2-0 win has them now second in group B, two points behind Club Brugge who drew 1-1 with FC Copenhagen.

And of the four goalless draws in the competition today, French outfit St Etienne profited the most. They are now up into second in Group F, ahead of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk by that point won tonight.

What next for Tottenham

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras

It's over to Greece next for Mauricio Pochettino's men where they face a quick re-match with Asteras on 6 November. Then Partizan Belgrade visit White Hart Lane on 27 November before Spurs round off their group campaign in Turkey against Besiktas on 11 December.

Time for a rematch?

Some news from the Champions League.

Sporting Lisbon are demanding that Tuesday's Champions League game against Schalke be replayed after they lost to a controversial injury-time penalty.

Jonathan Silva was adjudged to have handled the ball by Russian referee Sergei Kasarev but television replays showed contact was with his head. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting converted the penalty to give Schalke

a 4-3 victory.

"Sporting have demanded the match be played again or receive the bonus for a draw," Schalke said in a statement.

Celtic 2-1 Astra Giurgiu

Leaders Celtic now have seven points from three games in Group D, the same number as Red Bull Salzburg, 4-2 winners at home to Dinamo Zagreb.

Player reaction

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras

Tottenham's hat-trick hero Harry Kane on ITV4: "It was a great night... until I went in goal! I wasn't the best - I'll leave that to the keepers from now on. I quite fancied myself in goal, but when I saw the free-kick wobbling towards me I wasn't too happy!

"We want to kill off teams, and so five goals is great. I like sniffing in and around the box, seeking rebounds. Goals in and around the box are crucial.

"I have seen Erik Lamela do that in training - he has that in his locker. It's great for him to do them in the big games. I need to keep doing what I'm doing, and when I get a chance score goals.

"The manager tells me to go out there, play my football and get my goals. I have done that tonight."

Tom from Worcester: When Harry Kane does it against the Premier league teams then maybe he's ready for the England team. Not after scoring against an unknown team.

AP: That will hurt Tottenham, it certainly takes the gloss off their victory tonight. 5-0 up with three minutes to play and your goalkeeper gets needlessly sent-off and will now be suspended for crucial European away games to come. Spurs never do make it easy for themselves. At least their fans can't ever complain about being bored!

Jon in Eastleigh: Harry Kane, midweek Taibi.

Harry Kane is in front of the TV cameras. Composed, impressive interview for a 21-year-old. Won't let the goal he conceded ruin his first competitive hat-trick. Good on him.

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras

Bradley Allen

BBC London 94.9 summariser

"All smiles around White Hart Lane, amongst the players, supporters and coaching staff. That's just what Spurs needed, putting them in a much stronger position in the group. They must do the same when they travel in the next two games. If they can get at least four points they won't be too concerned.

"They can be encouraged by tonight's display, and will seek to repeat it against Newcastle at the weekend."

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras

The Europa League boring? Not having that. DVDs of this match will be selling like hot cakes in the Tottenham club shop. Incident-packed, thoroughly entertaining and Asteras could - and should - have scored more than one.

Deep into stoppage time.

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras

An outrageous 'Rabona' goal by Erik Lamela. A stunning Hugo Lloris save. A Harry Kane hat-trick. A Lloris red card. A Kane goalkeeping clanger. That's entertainment...

Tom Miszkowski: Harry Kane. Hat-trick hero, not so good in goal.

Chris Baldwin: Kane is human after all...

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras

Bradley Allen

BBC London 94.9 summariser

"Brilliant, Harry Kane pulls on the aubergine shirt and goes in goal! Considering the state of the game and as the opposition player was going wide, a yellow card for the French international keeper would have sufficed.

"Oh dear! The ball just pitched in front of Kane. He went and spilled it under his body. That was quite amusing, really..."

GOAL

Tottenham 5-1 Asteras - Jeronimo Barrales

Harry Kane makes a mistake while in goal
AP

Oh no. Copy book well and truly blotted. Jeronimo Barrales hits the target with the free-kick that results from the incident that led to Hugo Lloris's dismissal. But he would not have expected to score. Not in a month of Sunday's. Not even with Harry Kane in goal. But Kane's first action as a goalie sees the ball somehow squirm under him. Oops.

Edward Parham: Tonight's win will do Spurs a world of good in this competition. Great effort by Kane and Lamela.

Edward Parham: For Lloris, Lamela and company, you've got to wonder how much they'll have left in the tank this weekend versus Newcastle?

Glenn Sissen: So Harry Kane scores and has a good game against a team I can't pronounce, and people proclaim he should play for England?

RED CARD

Tottenham 5-0 Asteras - Hugo Lloris (86 mins)

What drama. The points are in the bag but Hugo Lloris is shown a red card for a foul as the last man and, with all substitutes used, Harry Kane takes the gloves.

Tottenham 5-0 Asteras

Bradley Allen

BBC London 94.9 summariser

"Harry Kane is on fire, and he's always in the right place at the right time. That's superbly capped his display tonight.

"He's been getting starts in the England Under-21 side and if his development continues apace then hopefully he'll be part of Gareth Southgate's squad next summer in the European Championships.

"He came here to Spurs from Arsenal as a 14-year-old, having been released by them."

Celtic 2-1 Astra Giurgiu

It should be 3-1 and done and dusted but Beram Kayal puts a good opening wide.

GOAL

Celtic 2-1 Astra Giurgiu - Gabriel Enache (81 mins)

Not pretty but they all count. Celtic fail to deal with a low cross from the left and Gabriel Enache is somewhat fortunate to bundle the ball in at the near post.

Take a bow Harry Kane. The 21-year-old secures himself a European hat-trick after nodding home Federico Fazio's chip from close range. Emphatic from Spurs.

Europa League latest

Besiktas are battering Partizan Belgrade in Group C, with former Chelsea youth player Gokhan Tor netting his side's fourth of the night with 10 minutes still to go.

Another 4-0 scoreline is between Group D's FC Red Bull Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb, with the hosts in the ascendancy. A hat-trick for Alan Douglas Borges de Carvalho.

And Borussia Monchengladbach lead Apollon Limassol 3-0 in Group A, thanks in part to an Ibrahima Traore brace.

Ten minutes remaining

Tottenham 4-0 Asteras

Ten minutes remaining. Time for another Tottenham goal or two.

Celtic 2-0 Astra Giurgiu - Stefan Johansen (79 mins)

All over rover. Silviu Lung can only parry the ball into the path of Stefan Johansen, who rifles it into the net with a thunderous left-foot effort before the scrambling Lung can get to it.

Celtic 1-0 Astra Giurgiu

BBC Scotland's Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

"Stefan Scepovic is off and running, with a vital goal that could go a long way to putting Celtic into the next round of the Europa League. Fair play to Ronny Deila for keeping him on when he could justifiably have replaced him. Can Celtic now kill the game off or at the very least keep Astra at bay at the other end?"

Tottenham 4-0 Asteras

Bradley Allen

BBC London 94.9 summariser

"Full credit to Harry Kane, who followed that effort in. The keeper has spilled a few shots this evening. Kane deserved his brace, because he's worked very hard as that number 10. A good evening's work again for Harry Kane."

Fifteen minutes remaining and Harry Kane is in the right place to tap home after Mousa Dembele's shot from the edge of the box is spilled by the keeper. Job done.

He might have missed a few chances tonight but there was no mistake this time from Stefan Scepovic. The Serb climbs high to head home Anthony Stokes's free-kick from the right.

Celtic fortunate to be ahead.

Chris Baldwin: Can Pochettino tell Lamela it's actually the Europa League on the weekends?

Graham Last: I will name my next child Erik...

Ben Howson: Why is Harry Kane not in the England team? The emphasis has been placed on Sterling, Chambers and so on. But at the moment he is better than most.

Tottenham 3-0 Asteras

This game has been peppered with some brilliant individual efforts. Hugo Lloris's save is right up there.

GREAT SAVE!

Tottenham 3-0 Asteras

Breathtaking from Hugo Lloris as the Spurs keeper flings himself across his line to keep out Fernando Usero's volley from 10-yards. The ball was rocketing into the back of the net before Lloris somehow got in the way. Quality.

Celtic 0-0 Astra Giurgiu

Close again for Astra, with the influential Constantin Budescu forcing a good save from Craig Gordon.

Tottenham 3-0 Asteras

Bradley Allen

BBC London 94.9 summariser

"Wonderful finish. When the ball spun up after the initial block he let it drop and his technique for the shot was wonderful. The Tottenham supporters certainly did not see the best of Lamela last campaign, but he's had a full pre-season under his belt and he looks strong, more robust, and two wonderful goals from him tonight."

Celtic 0-0 Astra Giurgiu

BBC Scotland's Alasdair Lamont at Celtic Park

"Whatever Ronny Deila said at half-time, it's not inspired Celtic to greater things. They've still to test Silviu Lung and their build-up play is too laboured to open up the Astra defence."

GOAL

Tottenham 3-0 Asteras - Erik Lamela (66 mins)

Erik Lamela celebrates
Getty Images

He can't score in the Premier League but he can't stop scoring in the Europa League. Erik Lamela puts the game beyond doubt with another special finish. It's not as good as his first but after his initial attempt spins off a defender the Argentine is well placed to fire a low volley into the net from 10-yards. Give him the man of the match award now.
