36' - CHANCE FOR MONACO: Moutinho clips a cross towards Coentrao at the far stick but the Portuguese heads wide.

The young Englishmen showed immense composure to shift the ball onto his right-side and fire at Subasic. The Monaco No.1 failed to hold the ball and Lamela was left to tap-in with consummate ease. 1-0 Spurs.

The Argentine grabs his third goal in four games as he profits from Dele Alli's initial effort to roll into an empty net.


Harry Kane has been hitherto isolated in attack but is linking well with the creative trident in midfield.

The hosts have 6ft 8 Lacina Traore within their ranks and are yet to utilise his stature at set-pieces. 

31': Adama Traore is clipped by Lamela and Monaco agve a free-kick in a dangerous area.

Slippy conditions providing a hazard for the French No.1 as he spills the midfielder's initial strike. Fortunately Jan Vertonghen was vigilant and cleared the ball to safety.

24': Now it's Fabinho's turn to overhit his cross.

Spurs controlling 61% of the possession.

19' - CHANCE FOR SPURS: Kane tees up Chadli while Subasic is out of his goal but the Belgian clips his effort onto the top of the crossbar.

17': Erik Lamela slaloms his way through three Monaco defenders and overhits his final pass. A move that perhaps synopsises these opening 20 minutes.

Little ingenunity from either side thus far. 

Dele Alli spins Toulalan in midfield and earns a free-kick.

6': L. Traore drifts in-behind the Spurs rearguard but skews his effort wide.

3' - CHANCE FOR SPURS: Carvalho almost turns Trippier's cross into his own net.

The teams are out! It's a scarcely packed -- as always -- Stade Louis II but expect a thrilling contest nonetheless. 

Kick-off is fastly approaching in a rain-soaked Stade Louis II. Stay tuned for live coverage.

Spurs XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Alli, Dier; Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela; Kane.

Monaco XI (4-3-3): Subasic; Fabinho, Raggi, Carvalho, Coentrao; Toulalan, A. Traore, Moutinho; Silva, L. Traore, Lemar.

Heung-Min Son is expected to miss out after sustaining a foot injury during the weekend's win. 

The pursestrings have been tightened at the club after the lavish summer of 2013, but Leonardo Jardim's side still harbour hopes of qualifying for the Champions League for a third successive campaign. 

All four fetched sizeable fees and the club swiftly sought replacements. Stephan El Shaarawy, for instance, arrived from Milan, while Fabio Coentrao joined on loan from Real Madrid.

The club experienced a mass exodus this summer -- with star figures in the ilk of Yannick Fereira-Carrasco, Anthony Martial, Aymen Abdennour and Geoffrey Kondogbia having departed for greener pastures.

Monaco vice president, Vadim Vasilyev has conceded earlier this week that it will be difficult for the principality side to rival PSG at the summit of the Ligue 1 table.

Tottenham, though, were merciless in their demolition of Qarabag at White Hart Line, thanks to goals from Heung-Min Song and Erik Lamela.

The defensive parsimony that defined last season's fairytale run to the Champions League quarter-finals seems to have dissipated. Jardim's also required a late leveller from Lacina Traore to salvage a point against Anderlecht on matchday one of the Europa League.

There were contrasting emotions in the south of France, however, as Monaco succumbed to a 3-3 draw with Guingamp. Thanks to goals from Bernardo Silva, Andrea Raggi and Nabil DirarLeonardo Jardim's side were in command, but their opponents dug their heels in and equalised late courtesy of Nicola Benezet -- though questions must be asked of Daniel Subasic's positioning. 

More importantly for Spurs, however, was the end of Harry Kane's barren spell infront of goal. The forward, who was named in Roy Hodgson's England squad earlier today, netted his side's third. Erik Lamela's performance, and late goal to round it off, was yet another positive.

Spurs will travel to the principality bouyed by their weekend triumph over Manchester City. Mauricio Pochettino's outfit ran out 4-1 victors, with Harry Kane, Erik Lamela, Toby Alderweireld and Eric Dier sharing the goals.
