Clinical Kane and exquisite Lamela highlight Spurs' Europa romp

Erik Lamela scored one of the finest goals ever seen at White Hart Lane on a night in which Tottenham's hat-trick hero, Harry Kane, ended the thrashing of Asteras Tripolis in goal.

It will be Erik Lamela's first half strike that will be remembered. A perfect rabona with his left leg curled behind his right from the edge of the area that had the White Hart Lane crowd first open-mouthed and then on its feet. There won't be a better goal scored all season.

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino, though, will take far more pleasure from the 5-1 victory over Greek side Asteras Tripoli, that not only puts his side in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa...

Tottenham score world's best goal, then concede the world's worst

Erik Lamela scored one of the finest goals ever seen at White Hart Lane on a night in which Tottenham's hat-trick hero, Harry Kane, ended the thrashing of Asteras Tripolis in goal.

It's not often the Europa League provides must-watch football, but it certainly delivered on Thursday as Tottenham scored one of the better goals in recent memory, only to then allow opponents Asteras Tripoli to score one of the softest.

The highlight came in the 30th minute, when Spurs' Erik Lamela stepped up to a loose ball at the top of the box.

Without stopping to adjust his footwork, Lamela planted with his right leg and wrapped his left foot around to strike the ball into the far corner. The...

Spurs seek to get City hammering out of system with Euro vision

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino commends Sergio Aguero for his dominant performance.

If Tottenham's 4-1 defeat to Manchester City seemed a disappointment at the time, subsequent results have eased the pain. Arsenal and Manchester United could only draw with teams that they were favourites to beat, while Liverpool struggled to overcome Queens Park Rangers, the worst side in the Premier League. Schadenfreude can be a great leveller.

As mentioned in my review of Saturday's loss, there were definite positives to be taken from the match. If you discount Tottenham's deadbeat defence and...

Time for Tottenham fans to revise expectations downward this season

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino commends Sergio Aguero for his dominant performance.

There were some Tottenham fans who saw many positives in Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Manchester City. They were almost certainly the die-hard optimists and those who hadn't made the 400-mile round trip from north London to watch the game. For everyone else, the sense of deja vu and that this is likely to be another long season, low on achievement, was inescapable.

Spurs did have their moments. If Roberto Soldado had converted his penalty to level the score with 30 minutes to play, then a shaky City...

Tottenham seek to tie up Christian Eriksen; Raheem Sterling staying put

ESPN FC's Craig Burley recaps the thrilling Premier League match between QPR and Liverpool in which QPR's two own goals gifted Liverpool a 3-2 victory.
Christian Eriksen seems to have settled in at White Hart Lane.

January will be here before you know it! To tide us over until then, here's today's batch of rumours and gossip.

Spurs to lock up Eriksen

Christian Eriksen seems to finally have settled into his new home at White Hart Lane and, according to The Mirror, if the Danish midfielder has it his way, he won't be going anywhere for a long time.

After a somewhat tumultuous year since coming over from Ajax last August, Eriksen has been thriving. The difference can only be the homey touches of Mauricio Pochettino,...

Player Ratings: Defensive lapses and missed chances for Tottenham

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol recaps Manchester City's comprehensive 4-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad.

I did nothing that could be construed as exercise on Saturday, yet I feel as if I was in the ring for 12 rounds with Mike Tyson and then ran a marathon with a stone in my shoe.

That's what comes of supporting Tottenham Hotspur. It's an exhausting business, as the 4-1 defeat at Manchester City comprehensively proved. It was a match that perfectly summed up Spurs' glorious interpretation of persistent failure.

Great going forward, woeful in defence, terribly unlucky and always ready to shoot themselves...
