Commentary

That is all from our live coverage from White Hart Lane. Good bye!
TOTTENHAM 4-1 MONACO: Erik Lamela's first professional hat-trick secures Spurs top spot in Group J, while bringing an end to the Red and Whites' European campaign.
FULL TIME!
There will be two minutes of time added on at the end of this match.
Just too much on that one! Much better from Alli who shows terrific vision to pick out Son with a penetrating through ball, but Subasic gets off his line to clear the threat. Monaco are trying to get this over with but Tottenham don't want to settle just yet!
Could have been five! Trippier makes waves down the right and picks out a delightful pass for Alli atop the area, but the substitute hesitates in possession and fails to pick out the required final ball for Son.
Tottenham are keeping possession with Monaco showing little desire to press high up the pitch and win it back. Time is running out on the match, while it already has wound down on Monaco's participation in Europe this season.
Monaco have all but given up chase at this point, eager to get this game over with and hop on a plane out of England. They had much fonder memories the last time they visited north London, but that is proving to be very much the opposite this evening.
STAT: Monaco have faced seven different English sides in European competition and hold victories over five of them (Leeds, Newcastle, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal). The only sides they haven't beaten are Manchester United and Spurs.
D. Alli
C. N'Jie
Tottenham Hotspur
Another treat for the fans as they are graced by promising youngster Dele Alli for the final 10 minutes, with the attacker replacing N'Jie.
T. Carroll
Goal
Tottenham Hotspur
SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED! Disgraceful defending from Echiejile allows the ball through to Carroll at the byline. He is able to get past the defender and somehow squeeze a shot past Subasic at the near post, as the keeper's horrid night continues.
HALF CHANCE! Lemar whips in an inviting corner and Pasalic is there to meet it at the far post, but he bounces a volley over the bar! Not a bad effort, that, from the midfielder.
N. Dirar
Yellow Card
Monaco
Dirar follows with a foul of his own and promptly follows his skipper into the book.
J. Toulalan
Yellow Card
Monaco
Toulalan knew exactly what he was doing there and a hard foul on N'Jie will see him straight into the referee's book.
SUBASIC AGAIN! Well he's having a better second half at least, is the Monaco keeper. Another miscue at the back allows Tottenham to break and the ball is worked all the way over to N'Jie, unmarked at the far post, but his effort is parried by the foot of Subasic.
The tempo has slowed drastically with tired legs beginning to set in. Defensive mistakes will offer the greatest chances at goals in the final 20 minutes, which has been the case for much of the night as well - with all three of Tottenham's goals coming off of Monaco giveaways.
Tottenham have curbed Monaco's comeback attempt for the time being and are doing an excellent job of suffocating the pace of the match in possession. The visitors seem to be fading as the minutes pass, symbolic of their European campaign.
STAT: The last time Monaco managed to score more than once in a proper European tie was in North London - at the Emirates - in a Champions League round of 16 fixture in February (four goals in eight games since).
R. Diarra
Bernardo Silva
Monaco
A debut for Raphael Diarra, the 20-year-old defender, as he replaces the ineffective Silva for the final 25 minutes. So far the first two subs made by Jardim have worked to perfection.
Monaco have their swagger back and are inching closer to a second. Remarkably, given how lopsided a first half we saw, this game appears to be in the balance at the moment. Lemar sends a header just over the bar following a corner, and Tottenham are appearing quite vulnerable right now.
N. Chadli
E. Lamela
Tottenham Hotspur
Rowdy applause from these home supporters who show their love for Lamela as his night comes to an end. Nacer Chadli is the one to replace him.
K. Mbappé
Assist
Monaco
And how about that assist from Mbappe, the teenaget putting in some excellent work down the left before teeing up the Italian atop the area.
S. El Shaarawy
Goal
Monaco
THEY'VE PULLED ONE BACK! Muted celebrations from El Shaarawy following an absolutely remarkable finish. He opens up atop the area and curls a measured finish past the outstretched arm of Lloris at the far post to give Monaco life.
Monaco are very much on the ascendency at the moment, and although their season is Europe is heading for an end, they can still salvage a bit of respect for themselves with a late goal or two to make the scoreline a bit more respectable. Lemar has been bright since coming on.
SUBASIC MAKES AMENDS! He's had a horrid night up to this point but makes a terrific save to deny Onomah from point-blank range following a Tottenham break, coupled with a poor piece of defending from Echiejile.
K. Mbappé
L. Traoré
Monaco
Mbappe Lottin comes on for striker Lacina Traore, which will likely prompt a bit of a formation change for the visitors.
STAT: Tottenham have collected just three yellow cards over the course of the competition, with the latest given to Bentaleb, a tournament low.
Monaco remain their own worst enemies, giving the ball away so cheaply in midfield. Not to take anything away from the performance of Tottenham, but they're hardly having to work to win the ball back. It's play like this that has seen Monaco struggle to keep pace with the top three in the French league this season.
N. Bentaleb
Yellow Card
Tottenham Hotspur
Bentaleb goes into the book for a cynical challenge. Tottenham are starting to drop deeper in defence as Monaco build a bit of concentrated pressure in attack.
The second half has started quite slowly, with Monaco in possession. The Ligue 1 outfit are attempting to spend more time on the ball, but they're struggling to up the tempo and have been very underwhelming going forward as a result.
T. Lemar
João Moutinho
Monaco
Moutinho has been poor through 45 minutes, though he's hardly alone in that respect, and his night is over, replaced here by Thomas Lemar.
Back underway in London!
Erik Lamela's hat-trick has rubber-stamped a dominant first half from Tottenham at White Hart Lane as they look set to secure their spot atop the group.
HALF TIME: TOTTENHAM 3-0 MONACO.
There will be one minute added on at the end of this first half.
In the other match in the group, Anderlecht are leading Qarabag 2-1, so even if Monaco were to produce an unlikely and near impossible four-goal turnaround, they would still be heading out of Europe. And at the moment, it doesn't appear as though they have any capability to at least make this second half interesting.
N. Bentaleb
E. Dier
Tottenham Hotspur
Nabil Bentaleb, who was a regular in this Tottenham side last season but has been forced out with the breakout of Alli, is the one to replace Dier.
Poor delivery from N'Jie, who had acres of space after being played down the right by Son and plenty of options in the centre, but is unable to get his cross through. The ball runs out for a throw and Tottenham will take the opportunity to replace Dier once and for all.
STAT: Since beating Arsenal 3-1 in the Champions League last February, Monaco have won just once in Europe, excluding qualifiers (D4 L3).
Son Heung-Min
Assist
Tottenham Hotspur
Son picks up the assist, though that was all in the finish from Lamela.
E. Lamela
Goal
Tottenham Hotspur
SPURS RUNNING RIOT! A first senior hat-trick for Lamela who takes a pass from Son and confidently smashes a finish past Subasic at the near post! Tottenham surely going through as group winners now.
Wallace
Yellow Card
Monaco
Wallace is booked and he will miss the next European match as a result - though it doesn't appear as though it will come this season.
The referee makes Monaco hold off as they get set to take the subsequent corner, with Dier down injured. This does appear to be a bit of a concern for the midfielder, and Pochettino is set to replace him as more of a precaution than anything.
DEFLECTED OVER! End-to-end they go at White Hart Lane! Monaco hit back on the counter and Pasalic is teed up for a shot atop the area. His effort takes a deflection to beat Lloris, but sends the strike bouncing just over the bar.
Shocking defending! A harmless corner is played into the area by Lamela, which appears routine for Traore. The Monaco forward ducks out of it at the last second, however, allowing Alderweireld to meet it at the near post and nearly make it three!
Set pieces and balls over the top appear to be Monaco's best route back into this game. Tottenham don't look very convincing in dealing with balls in the air and the visitors have started to catch on as they play out wide, looking to send crosses in.
The tempo has picked up a great deal again and we can expect it to remain this way with Monaco needed three goals to keep their qualification hopes alive. They are showing no reluctancy as they throw bodies forward in attack, desperately searching for a breakthrough.
Monaco nearly pull one back! Far from convincing defending from Spurs as the ball isn't cleared properly as it comes to Bakayoko. The midfielder unleashes a volley which takes a slight deflection and rolls just inches wide of the near post with Lloris rooted to his spot.
Not far away in the end! Impressive run from Onomah, though he tries to do too much with it. N'Jie arrives to keep the chance alive and had the awareness to slide Son through on the left. The forward tees up Carroll atop the area, but his first-time strike narrowly misses the top corner.
Despite holding a convincing lead, Tottenham remain on the front foot and and looking to add to their lead. Dier flicks a header on towards the back post for Son following a corner, but the South Korea international sends a scissor-kick into the side netting.
This has not gone at all according to play for Leonardo Jardim's side. They were given a boost when the team news came out, but even without the likes of Kane and Alli, Tottenham have jumped out to a terrific start in front of their home fans. Monaco just don't appear up for this game at the moment.
STAT: Tottenham are unbeaten in their last six games against French sides in Europe (W3 D3).
E. Lamela
Goal
Tottenham Hotspur
IT'S A HORROR SHOW FOR SUBASIC! Lamela runs forward on what is a relatively untroubling attack and tries his luck from the top of the area. There's not particularily much behind the shot, but Subasic makes a meal of it, poorly timing his jump and letting the ball squeeze through under him - and that may be enough to see Monaco out of the competition.
Son Heung-Min
Assist
Tottenham Hotspur
Assist Heung-Min Son
MILES OVER! Encouraging bit of play fromt the hosts as they work the ball around smartly in the final third. The attack comes to an abrupt end, however, as Son lashes a shot into the uppr deck of the stadium from 25-yards out.
Slowly but surely Monaco are getting bodies forward and starting to pose a bit of a threat. Dirar finds a nice pocket of space on the right and looks to whip a cross in, but impressive closing speed from Onomah allows him to intervene and block it behind for a corner.
From a purely neutral standpoint, the early Tottenham goal is perhaps the best thing that could have happened to this match, as Monaco will be forced to through caution to the wind and one point or another and chase all three points which they require to keep their hopes of advancing alive.
The tempo has slowed drastically since a lively opening couple of minutes. Monaco are attempting to get their legs under them as they pass it around at the back, though they seem completely out of ideas when they cross the halfway line.
STAT: Monaco have lost just three of their 13 meetings home and away against English opposition (W6 D4).
Monaco seem a bit shocked at the moment. They're the ones in need of all three points, and help from elsewhere, yet they are struggling to get themselves going and already trail. Their future in Europe is in real doubt at the moment.
B. Davies
Assist
Tottenham Hotspur
Excellent stuff from Davies who started the move by winning the ball back and then provided the vital touch in the end to serve the ball to Lamela on a platter.
E. Lamela
Goal
Tottenham Hotspur
TOTTENHAM DRAW FIRST BLOOD! Davies does so well to win the ball back on the left and pick out N'Jie. The forward plays the ball back through for the left-back, who picks out Lamela in the centre with a terrific pullback and the Argentine nestles it into the far corner!
OFF WE GO THEN!
Monaco substitutes: Mexique, Mbappe Lottin, Carvalho, Lemar, N'Doram, Diarra, Nardi.
Monaco starting line-up: (3-5-2): Subasic; Wallace, Toulalan, Echiekile; Silva, Pasalic, Moutinho, Bakayoko, Dirar; Traore, El Shaarawy.
Spurs substitutes: Carter-Vickers, Vorm, Chadli, Townsend, Kane, Alli, Bentaleb.
Spurs starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Wimmer, Davies; Dier, Carroll; Onomah, N'Jie, Lamela; Heung-Min Son.
TEAM NEWS: Lacina Traore and Stephan El Shaarawy will be slotting in up top for the visitors, with Bernardo Silva and Nabil Dirar causing problems in the wide areas. Jeremy Toulalan may be asked to drop back into a defensive three from the off, given the presence of Joao Moutinho, Mario Pasalic and Tiemoue Bakayoko in midfield.
TEAM NEWS: Kieran Trippier gets another run out at right-back, with Kevin Wimmer getting a rare start at centre-back. Ben Davies starts at left-back, with Thomas Carroll coming into the midfield. Erik Lamela, Clinton N'Jie and Josh Onomah create an inexperienced offensive trio. Heung-Min Son starts up top.
In France, Spurs managed to scrape a 1-1 draw against Monaco, with Erik Lamela and Stephan El Shaarawy grabbing the goals a couple of months ago. The away outfit are reliant on other results this evening, but three points would see them head into the next stage should Anderlecht fail to win tonight.
Hello and welcome to live coverage of Monaco's trip to face Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, with the hosts having already qualified from Group J of the Europa League. Mauricio Pochettino's outfit top the table and have already secured their place in the knock-out stages, but the visitors have plenty of play for. As it stands, the Ligue 1 outfit are merely one point off second-placed Anderlecht.
