    Tottenham 4-1 Monaco

    Spurs' hat-trick hero Erik Lamela: "I am happy for me and the team we won and we play a good game. I am confident, the team is confident, we are doing good we need to keep working to take another position in the league.

    Goalscorer Tom Carroll: " I was delighted to get the goal, it was a great performance all round. I got the nod and had to take my opportunity and did that tonight.

    "We wanted to go out and win the group even though we only needed a point we went for the win.

    "Competition for places in the team is great, we just just have to work day in day out on the training ground and hope i get the nod on game day.

    Quote Message: Monaco were swept aside by a superb Spurs side as Lamela got his hattrick in the first-half. After the break they got a consolation goal but they didn't offer much in attack or physically offer a great deal in this tie. The deft finish from Carroll was a fitting end to the evening. There is a real belief and unity among the Spurs team. Even the young academy players know they had to step up to the plate and reach the standards and a lot of them did that tonight. from Former Premier League striker Bradley Allen

    Tottenham 4-1 Monaco

    Tottenham pass the ball around the on the edge of the area, inviting Monaco to attack them. As they do, Spurs once again turn up the speed dial and get the ball up the pitch quickly, but this time Monaco snuff out the break.

  15. Elsewhere in Europe

    Former Fulham striker Bryan Ruiz has scored twice for Sporting Lisbon against Besiktas and as it stands the Turkish side are heading out of Europe.

    Earlier Sporting's Islam Slimani had cancelled out Mario Gomez's opener.

    Final change for Tottenham as Clinton Njie, who's been unlucky not to score tonight, comes off with Dele Alli on for the final few minutes.

  17. GOAL - Tottenham 4-1 Monaco

    Tom Carroll

    Just as Monaco had been threatening a bit of a fightback, Tottenham score a peach of a goal. 

    Son Heung-min sets things in motion, picking out Clinton Njie wide right again. His shot is stopped by Danijel Subasic's foot but Tom Carroll wins the ball back, shows good feet to skip past a defender and retains his composure to slot in from a tight angle. 

    Not a bad way to score your first senior goal for the club.

    Tom Carroll, Tottenham
    Monaco players
  18. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 3-1 Monaco

    Stunningly obvious foul from Monaco's grey-haired skipper Jeremy Toulalan as he shoves Clinton Nijie off the ball. He was never looking at the ball, instead staring at the Tottenham forward all the time as he halted his run. Yellow card.

  19. Post update

    Tottenham 3-1 Monaco

    Another fast, sweeping Tottenham counter attack as Son Heung-min feeds a pass to Ben Davies, who in turn flicks the ball onto Clinton Njie. Once again he just has the keeper to beat and he hits his shot well this time, but good save by Danijel Subasic.

  20. Glenn in common

    Tottenham 3-1 Monaco

    Glenn Hoddle

    Strong connections between these two sides, with some big names having played for both clubs. 

    Monaco might want to add Erik Lamela to the above list, just to stop him scoring against them. Four of his five Europa League goals this season have come against the French side.

  21. Post update

    Tottenham 3-1 Monaco

    Oh a real chance for Monaco to make it 3-2, but Nabil Dirar, unmarked, somehow heads wide from a corner.

  22. SUBSTITUTION

    No more goals for Erik Lamela as he is replaced by Nacer Chadli. As expected, a standing ovation from the home fans for his first-half hat-trick.

    Quote Message: El Shaarawy just shapes opens up his body, he is 25 yards out from goal, it is a curling effort, the flight of the ball sort of deceives Hugo Lloris.

    Former Premeir League striker Bradley Allen
  24. GOAL - Tottenham 3-1 Monaco

    Stephan El Shaarawy

    Monaco have a goal back, prompting few cheers from the away end. It is a fine goal as Kylian Mbappe picks out Stephan El Shaarawy on the edge of the area and he coolly finds the bottom corner with a curled finish. He doesn't celebrate. Very much a consolation goal for the French side.

  25. CLOSE!

    Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    Golden chance for Joshua Onomah to grab his first Tottenham goal! Son Heung-min pokes the ball through to the 18-year-old inside the area, he manages to evade one challenge wihich leaves him with just Danijel Subasic to beat, but he scuffs his shot straight at the keeper.

    Joshua Onoma, Tottenham
  26. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    That tussle with Nabil Bentaleb is pretty much Lacina Traore's final action in the game. He goes off to be replaced by Kylian Mbappe.

  27. YELLOW CARD

    Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    Nabil Bentaleb, after losing the ball, tries to win it back and brings down Lacina Traore. No mean feat given the size of the Monaco striker, but it earns him a booking.

  28. Post update

    Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    It is almost like the mere presence of the Tottenham players make Monaco nervous. 

    Clinton Njie pounces on some hesitancy in the Monaco defence and charges forward, Erik Lamela in support. Njie's pass has a bit too much pace and Lamela has to go further wide than he would like, having to cross instead of shoot and the French side clear. 

  29. Elsewhere in Europe

    Former Chelsea and Wigan Franco di Santo has scored for Schalke against Asteras with the German side on track to top their group.

    It is 0-0 between Besiktas and Sporting Lisbon with the Portuguese side needing a win to stand a chance of qualifying from group H.

    With Lokomotiv Moscow beating Skenderbeu Korce, as it stands the Russians will top the group with Besiktas second. Big second-half coming up in Portugal.

  30. KICK-OFF

    Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    Tottenham, firmly on course to finish top of Group J, get things back under way.

  31. SUBSTITUTION

    Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    What do Tottenham do? Take their foot off the pedal and take it easy for the next 45 minutes or flex their muscles and go for more goals?

    The players are back out, with Monaco making a change - Thomas Lemar on for Joao Moutinho.

  32. Post update

    Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    Nothing is going Monaco's way at all tonight. Even if they were winning they wouldn't be going through the knockout stage as things stand, with Anderlecht - second in Group J - currently beating Qarabag 2-1. May as well go home.

    Such a delight to watch Tottenham attack. 

    Monaco are caught in possession and immediately two Tottenham players counter. Two more surge up the pitch in support and it is suddenly four against two. A Monaco defender has to stab the ball out for a corner.

  41. GOAL - Tottenham 3-0 Monaco

    Erik Lamela

    Game, set and match. What a night for Erik Lamela, as he completes his hat-trick - his first for Tottenham. 

    Simple stuff this one, Son Heung-min plays a quick ball to Lamela, on the edge of the area, and he drives the ball in at Danijel Subasic's near post.

    Eric Dier has been a virtual ever present for Tottenham this season but he's taken a knock. He's down on the pitch before managing to get up and hobbles to the touchline.

    This isn't Tottenham's strongest side remember, there are a couple of youngsters in the squad while Monaco have gone with a strong line-up. They look second best, but they might have a chance from set pieces. 

    That earlier free-kick caught out the Tottenham defence and they have another chance as Joao Moutinho sends a free-kick into the area, but Wallace heads over.

    Clinton Njie, Tottenham
  46. Post update

    Tottenham 2-0 Monaco

    What's Wallace playing at? A chance for Monaco, a real chance, as a free-kick is fired into the area. Tottenham's defence is caught standing still, Wallace is through, but instead of volleying he tries to control the ball, succeeding only in handing possession back to Spurs.

  47. Post update

    Tottenham 2-0 Monaco

    Tottenham have been great to watch this season, their pace on the counter has been particularly impressive. That's on show again as they push forward in numbers, panicking the Monaco defence as Son Heung-min feeds a pass to Tom Carroll, who curls over.

    Erik Lamela

    I told you we were in for goals in this game! Not even 15 minutes in and Tottenham are 2-0 up, Son Heung-Min heads on the ball for Erik Lamela, who breaks towards goal before firing goalwards. Monaco keeper Danijel Subasic should have it covered, but he lets the ball squirm under him.

    Monaco now need to score at least two goals to have a chance of progressing, no easy task against a side that has lost just three games all season.

    "Celtic's Europa League campaign ends like it began, with an uninspiring draw on the road. Ronny Deila's side rallied late on after the Turks were reduced to 10 men but in truth, they were poor when it mattered. Wasteful passing, nervousness in possession and a lack of accuracy in front of goal, once again their undoing.

    "If Deila was keen to use this match as a way of salvaging some much needed European pride, few would argue that he proved his point. He now also has the unenviable record of being the first Celtic boss not to record a single win in a European group stage. Something to ponder on the long flight home."

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Dejan Lovren

    It may have escaped your attention but Dejan Lovren was named on the shortlist for Premier League player of the month earlier today. Yes, you did read that correctly.

    Much maligned since his £20m move from Southampton in 2014, Lovren is getting a run in the side and it would seem he's impressing.

    Others on the shortlist? Ross Barkley, Romelu Lukaku, Troy Deeney, Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane.

    Solid, if unspectacular, so far tonight.

  102. Post update

    Tottenham v Monaco (20:05 GMT)

    Harry Kane

    With a game against Newcastle in the Premier League on Sunday, Tottenham are set to rest a couple of players for tonight's game against Monaco, with Harry Kane expected to be one of them.

    Monaco must win and hope Anderlecht fail to beat Qarabag to qualify, but Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is not planning to make it too easy for the French side.

    "There may be one or two more changes but not much," he said. "It is a good opportunity to finish first and win the group."

    Team news should be up shortly...

  103. At home in the Europa...

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Liverpool celebrate

    Liverpool are one of only six teams unbeaten in the Europa League group stages this season – the others being Napoli, Lazio, Besiktas and the Group K pair of Schalke and Sparta Prague.

    Neither side looks like scoring in this game, so Liverpool are looking a good bet for ending the group stage unbeaten.

  105. HALF-TIME

    Fenerbahce 1-0 Celtic

    Fenerbahce are on course to join Molde in the knockout stage of the Europa League as a howler from Craig Gordon - who had earlier produced two outstanding saves - gifts the hosts the lead.

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Pressing and possession are important parts of gegenpressing. Liverpool have certainly got the possession part nailed, not so much the pressing. Into one minute of stoppage time and this half is surely going to end goalless.

  108. Chelsea's Chalobah scores for Napoli

    One of Chelsea's 33 players on-loan around Europe has scored in the Europa League tonight.

    England under-21 midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah has opened his account for Napoli against Legia Warsaw.

    It is currently 2-0 in that game.

  109. GOAL - Fenerbahce 1-0 Celtic

    Lazar Markovic

    One for the goalkeeper bloopers reel as a Craig Gordon howler gifts Fenerbahce the lead.

    He races out to try and beat Lazar Markovic, on loan at Fenerbahce from Liverpool, to a ball but lets it run through his legs and Markovic gleefully runs past him and sidefoots home from a tight angle.

    Three - YES THREE - Celtic players make sliding attempts to clear the ball. All miss.

    This may make Daniel Sturridge more resilient...but maybe a little less mobile...

    There's a few goals to tell you about elsewhere in the competition - Molde have equalised against Ajax which further lessens the Dutch side's chances of going through.

  112. YELLOW CARD

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Very casual pace to this game, with both sides looking pretty content with a draw. That result would be enough to see Liverpool take first place, and Sion second.

    The pressure has just gone up a notch on Sion, though, as Rubin Kazan have taken the lead against Bordeaux. If Sion lose, Rubin will pip them to second.

    They've upped the tempo a tad now and Ebenezer Assifuah gets the game's first yellow as he lunges in on Emre Can in an effort to snatch possession.

  113. BreakingReal's appeal rejected

    Some news to bring you from Spain, where Real Madrid's appeal against their expulsion from the Copa del Rey, for fielding an ineligible player, has been rejected by the Spanish soccer federation.

    Real included Denis Cheryshev in their starting line-up for last week's last 32, first leg game at third-tier Cadiz even though he should have been serving a one-match suspension. The Russia forward opened the scoring in a 3-1 victory.

  114. Post update

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Chance for Liverpool! Divock Origi bundles his way through two defenders and into the area, he's through on goal but the ball runs away from him a little bit, just enough for an FC Sion defender to get back and get the tackle in as Origi was about to pull the trigger.

    Fenerbahce 0-0 Celtic

    Celtic win a couple of corners in quick succession but can't do anything with them. Better from the visitors, though, after coping with some early Fenerbahce pressure.

  117. Post update

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Chance for FC Sion as Edimilson Fernandes gets away from Kolo Toure midway inside the Liverpool half and by the time the Reds defender has turned around, Fernandes is already on the edge of the area. The hard pitch causes the ball to bounce a bit awkwardly and he scuffs his shot wide.

  118. Elsewhere in the Europa League

    There has been a big goal in Group A, where Ajax have taken the lead against Molde through Donny van de Beek. The Dutch giants can still qualify provided Fenerbahce lose against Celtic. It's 0-0 in that one.

  119. Post update

    Fc Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Decent effort from Divock Origi, opening up a bit of space for himself 25 yards from goal and letting fly with a rasping drive. Just wide.

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    FC Sion, second in Group B and three points ahead of Rubin Kazan, just need a point to be certain of joining Liverpool in progressing and they are clearly in no rush, one player ambling over to take a thrown in. 

    They have their first chance on goal soon after as Carlitos turns just outside the area, but lashes well over.

  121. Post update

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Brad Smith is right in the thick of things at the moment. 

    He pings in a cross, again looking for Divock Origi, but it just goes beyond the striker, before he attacks down the left again soon after. This time his cross is blocked for a corner, but James Milner's set piece is cleared.

    Fenerbahce 0-0 Celtic

    Still goalless in Turkey but Celtic's defence has looked very nervy in the opening exchanges. Ronny Deila is out of his seat and pacing up and down his technical area. Can the visitors weather the early storm?

  124. Brad's U-turn

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Bradley Smith

    Bradley Smith, 21, was out of contract at Liverpool this summer and turned down a new deal with the expectation of featuring more elsewhere.

    The Australian however was told he would only be allowed to leave if another club was prepared to go through a tribunal to agree a fee for him. Having come through the ranks at Liverpool, the Reds were entitled to at least compensation and Smith was still paid by the club even after his deal had elapsed.

    A move away never happened and after Jurgen Klopp arrived as manager, Smith opted to sign the original deal he was offered. This is his third appearance, but a first start.

  125. Post update

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Brad Smith, a 21-year-old left back, is making his full debut for Liverpool today and almost has a dream start as he swings a perfect cross behind the Sion defence and to Divock Origi's outstretched boot. The striker doesn't connect well with it, though, and the ball skews wide of goal. 

  126. Post update

    FC Sion 0-0 Liverpool

    Kolo Toure is loving a long ball in these early stages. Twice he launches the ball up towards the Sion area, and twice the Liverpool attackers fail to do anything with it. Sion are still in with a shout of qualifying, and their fans are up for this, belting out the chants.

  127. KICK-OFF

    Liverpool get things under way at Sion, with Celtic's and other 18:00 GMT kick-offs across Europe also getting up and running.

  128. Post update

    It's a cold one in Sion with a sprinkling of frosting surrounding the pitch, temperatures are just above freezing. 

    The players are out, and it is almost time for kick off.

  129. 'Henderson is a fighter'

    FC Sion v Liverpool (18:00 GMT)

    Jurgen Klopp said he is not looking for a reaction from his players tonight following their defeat to Newcastle on Sunday.

    "I am responsible (for Newcastle) more than the players, I want to see them play football, not give a reaction. This is another game, another tournament. Why after one game is everything in doubt, we are ok in this moment.

    On captain Jordan Henderson's first start, he added:"We will have to see how long he plays, he is a fighter but we want him on Sunday too. It is good to have him back."

    Liverpool and Tottenham may have already sealed their place in the last 32, but that doesn't mean there is absolutely nothing to play for.

    The 12 Europa League group winners and the four best third-placed teams from the Champions League group stage will be drawn against the 12 Europa League group runners-up and the remaining third-placed teams from the Champions League.

    That means that while Liverpool and Tottenham can still get a Champions League dropout, finishing top of their group will give them a better chance of an easier draw in the knockout stage.

  133. Out to spoil the party

    Fenerbahce v Celtic (18:00 GMT)

    Celtic

    Celtic may be out, but manager Ronny Deila says his side will do all they can to "ruin Fenerbahce's party" tonight.

    Fenerbahce, who are second in Group A, are well placed to join current group leaders Molde in the next round but Ajax can overtake the Turkish side.

    Celtic will finish bottom of the group, but are determined to do all they can to pick up their first win in this season's competition.

    "The motivation is to win and to perform," Deila said. "It's a good opportunity as well to make a good performance and fight really hard for getting a result."

    Another day, another injury setback for Daniel Sturridge. The luckless Liverpool striker is set for another lengthy spell on the sidelines because of a hamstring injury.

    With Sturridge out and Christian Benteke struggling to adapt to Jurgen Klopp's style, 20-year-old striker Divock Origi could be the man who has to step up to the plate.

    The last-time he was handed a start for Liverpool, against Southampton in the League Cup eight days ago, he bagged a hat-trick. Will he come up with the goods again tonight?

  144. Thursdays fun days

    Europa League

    Ahh the Europa League - the competition that has people reaching for an atlas to work out where teams whose names would make high-scoring scrabble words come from. 

    Long trips to Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan, largely unknown players and dull goalless group stage draws - enough to send a shiver down anyone's spine.

    Things, though, could be about to get a whole lot more intriguing.

    With Liverpool and Tottenham both through to the knockout stage, Man United joining the fun in February and Gary Neville's Valencia also in the mix, Thursdays could be fun days once again.

    And who wouldn't be excited by the prospect of an all-Premier League European cup final?
