Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies sends a message to hat-trick hero Erik Lamela
Ben Davies has congratulated Erik Lamela on his hat-trick after the Argentine’s treble helped Tottenham Hotspur secure top spot in Europa League Group G.
The Argentina international broke the deadlock in the second minute before he added his second 13 minutes later and the club’s record-signing eight minutes before half-time.
On-loan AC Milan midfielder Stephan El Shaarawy netted a late consolation for the visitors, before Tottenham substitute Tom Carroll wrapped up a 4-1 win for the hosts.
And Wales international Davies was thrilled to help the north London side finish at the top of their group ahead of Anderlecht after a stunning win against Monaco.

Tottenham midfielder Lamela has impressed for the north London side in Europe’s second-tier club competition this term, netting five goals in five games.
