Erik Lamela has now scored seven goals this season

Erik Lamela scored a first-half hat-trick to make sure Tottenham topped Europa League Group J in style with a 4-1 victory over Monaco.

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

Monaco's only goal came from Stephan El Shaarawy.

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