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.

The Welsh defender has made one assist in seven Premier League appearances this season.

Davies has also started four of Tottenham’s six Europa League games.

The South American midfielder scored the first hat-trick for an English club against Monaco since Tony Yeboah for Leeds United in 1995.
