VIEW FROM WHITE HART LANE

Liam Twomey reports: “What did we just see? White Hart Lane erupts, first into cheers and then an awed chorus of 'oohs' and 'aahs' as Erik Lamela's fabulous 25-yard curling rabona strike is replayed on the big screens at either end of the ground. Its the most emphatic reminder yet of the prodigious talent that prompted the notoriously spend-thrift Daniel Levy to splash out £25 million to acquire the Argentine winger, and it's worth the price of admission alone.”

TOTTENHAM 2-0 ASTERAS - AMAZING GOAL!!!

GOAL: Wow!!!!!!!! It’s an extraordinary piece of skill from Erik Lamela! The ball breaks to him on the edge of the box and the Argentine finds the far corner with what can only be described as a behind-the-leg-flick-with-other-foot-rabona. Simply stunning!

TOTTENHAM 1-0 ASTERAS - HOW IS THAT NOT A GOAL???

Asteras Tripolis come so close to levelling! Facundo Parra finds himself through on goal but has his initial strike saved by Hugo Lloris. It rebounds straight to his feet but his follow-up somehow gets blocked by Ben Davies. Great defending!

TOTTENHAM 1-0 ASTERAS - CHANCE FOR TRIPOLIS

Tottenham have been much the better team but Asteras Tripolis come oh so close to grabbing an equaliser. A free kick is swung over from the left and Giorgos Zisopoulos rises highest at the far post to loop a header over Hugo Lloris and just over the top.

TOTTENHAM 1-0 ASTERAS - THROUGH ON GOAL!

Etienne Capoue receives the ball on the edge of the area and only has the goalkeeper to beat. But, much like Samuel Eto’o earlier for Everton, he can’t adjust his feet in time and the goalkeeper saves.

CELTIC 0-0 ASTRA - VISITORS PRESSING

Ryan Benson reports: “Astra are starting to liven up as an attacking force themselves, though. Celtic cope with and clear a corner, but the visitors remain on the front foot. Surely they will create a chance soon?”

VIEW FROM WHITE HART LANE

Liam Twomey reports: “It always seemed as though something spectacular might be required to wake a heavily depleted and subdued White Hart Lane crowd from its slumber this evening, and Harry Kane's superb 25-yard strike in off the post has provided just that. Its his third goal in four Europa League matches this season. Thursday must be his favourite night of the week...”

TOTTENHAM 1-0 ASTERAS - KANE GOAL

GOAL: Spurs are ahead! Etienne Capoue nudges the ball right to Harry Kane around 35 yards out and the striker takes a couple of touches forward before burying the ball into the far corner. Great strike. His fourth goal of the season.

CELTIC 0-0 ASTRA - GOOD START BY HOSTS

Ryan Benson reports: “Astra have started this match with a whole host of players behind the ball, with Celtic looking to put early pressure on. The hosts have started well.”

TOTTENHAM 0-0 ASTERAS - MAZZA CHANCE

Uh-oh. Erik Lamela shows some nice touches around the edge of the box before having an inviting cross cleared. Etienne Capoue then switches off and the visitors are soon away on the counter. Pablo Mazza bears down on goal but, 25 yards out and with no support, drags a shot wide of the far post.

LILLE 0-0 EVERTON - MARTINEZ REACTION

Everton manager Roberto Martinez to ITV Sport: "It was a very pleasing clean sheet. We knew that Lille were going to throw everything at us and I thought we coped with that extremely well... It's another very good away performance, another very good point and a really strong performance from everyone."

LILLE 0-0 EVERTON - SUMMARY

Tom Webber reports: “The spoils are shared in northern France as neither side showed enough guile to earn themselves all three points. Eto'o and McGeady had the best chances to find the net, but neither of them could manage it. Lille played with intensity but lacked a cutting edge, and thus draw their third consecutive game of the competition.”
