Tottenham ran riot in their final game of the Europa League group stage, thrashing Monaco 4-1 at White Hart Lane.
Erik Lamela opened the scoring inside two minutes, and added a second soon after. The Argentine was Spurs’ best performer on the night, completing his hat-trick before half time with a powerful finish with his weaker foot.
Monaco got one back after the break, but the hosts were in cruise control for much of the second half. Tom Carroll eventually added a fourth late on.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.
Fact we can make wholesale changes and the side adopt the same style and motivation is testimony to Poch and his staff

Loved how Eric Dier didn't want to come off for Nabil Bentaleb. The boy bleeds Spurs #COYS

3 – Erik Lamela has scored the first hat-trick for an English club v Monaco since Tony Yeboah for Leeds in September 1995. Trois.
