  • The full-time whistle goes and Tottenham can celebrate their sixth straight win in Group K after sweeping past Anzhi Makhachkala 4-1. Soldado was the star of the show with a hat-trick and Holtby also got in on the act with a delightful goal, and Spurs will be confident of going a lot further in the tournament when they resume European action early in 2014.

  • Pomazan makes an excellent save down to his left to turn away a well-struck low effort from Lamela from just inside the area.

  • Coulthirst links up well with Sigurdsson before Lamela is dispossessed on the edge of the area as he tries to cut inside a couple of defenders.

  • Naughton goes into the book following a clumsy challenge on Jucilei.

  • Spurs deserve great credit for keeping the tempo high on a night when they were not under a lot of pressure to get a result. They have really put on a good show for the White Hart Lane faithful.

  • Razak goes off as Gatagov enters the fray for the final few minutes.

  • Spurs win a free-kick just a few yards outside the area and Townsend steps up to shoot, but it crashes into the defensive wall.

  • Friedel denies Anzhi with a great double save as he parries a Burmistrov drive and then gets up quickly to beat away the rebound from the same player.

  • Anzhi make their first change of the night, bringing on Angbwa for Agalarov.

  • Coulthirst is quickly into the action with a neat piece of footwork. He is a very highly rated prospect and will hope to sparkle in the closing stages.

  • Naughton does well to win an aerial duel but takes a heavy landing and will need a moment to recover as he hobbles over to the touchline to receive treatment.

  • Soldado receives a standing ovation for his hat-trick tonight as he goes off to be replaced by Shaquile Coulthirst.

  • Anzhi win a corner but it is a poor delivery and Fryers is able to get the ball clear.

  • Serderov has a chance to pull a goal back for Anzhi as he gets in behind the Spurs defence, but Friedel comes out to narrow the angle and make a decent save.

  • Serderov has a chance to pull a goal back for Anzhi as he gets in behind the Spurs defence, but Friedel comes out to narrow the angle and make a decent save.

  • Lamela almost gets in on the act as he connects well with a header from Frederick's shot and Pomazan leaps up to make a fingertip save.

  • GOAL! Soldado steps up and completes his hat-trick to put Tottenham 4-1 ahead. Pomazan guesses the correct way, diving to his right, but the shot has enough power to creep inside the post.

  • PENALTY! Fredericks is sent tumbling in the area by Jucilei following a terrific run. It looks initially as though the appeal will again fall on deaf ears, but the extra official behind the goal-line convinces the referee to point to the spot.

  • Townsend tries his luck from distance but the shot lacks accuracy as it sails high into the stands.

  • Tottenham's second change sees Dembele withdrawn, as Eriksen makes a welcome return from injury.
