Second-half goals from Erik Lamela and Harry Kane sent Tottenham into the quarter-finals of the League Cup at the expense of Championship side Brighton.

For the second mid-week running we have Kane and Lamela scoring the goals to give Tottenham a victory. Lamela was introduced at half-time and bagged the opener within 10 minutes after some neat interplay with Roberto Soldado, before Kane sealed the win by stabbing the ball home after Soldado's shot was saved. Kane is the club's top scorer in all competitions this season with six goals and may have done enough to earn a start against Aston Villa on Sunday.

Tottenham looked on paper to have Newcastle United's number heading into their match today and an opening goal from Emmanuel Adebayor fit the script, but things turned ugly in the second half, and Spurs would eventually lose 1-2.

Nervy times for Mauricio Pochettino at White Hart Lane. With a mediocre start to the season, Spurs had to view this fixture as a must-win, and if they were to consider themselves a club that deserves to play European ball, a win in convincing fashion. Instead, they seemed to rest on their opening goal and got outplayed in the second half. Ryan Mason was the bright spot for the opening 45 minutes, he was at the center of most of their chances and he provided the assist to Adebayor's goal. The defense was an absolute shambles with Eric Dier particularly to blame out of the group. Spurs sit in the bottom half of the table and their fantasy assets look none-too attractive right now.

Nacer Chadli can continue his goalscoring form against Newcastle in Week 9.

What a remarkable turnaround it has been for Chadli after a difficult debut season, sitting pretty as Tottenham's top scorer with four goals in the opening eight weeks of this campaign. The Belgian winger has displayed power, pace and clinical finishing ability playing as a left-sided forward in Mauricio Pochettino's 4-3-3 system and he is available for a bargain price as Spurs host Newcastle in Week 9.

Eric Dier could prove great value for Tottenham's home clash with Newcastle.

Dier was the must-have defender in the Yahoo game back in August after two goals in the opening two games of the season, and he's back on the radar this weekend. Obviously the young defender hasn’t been able to keep up that stunning early form, but his price is back below £6million and he will start Tottenham's home game against Newcastle with the two Kyles (Naughton and Walker) still out with injury. Solid in defence and a threat in the opposition's box, Dier could prove great value.

A hat-trick from Harry Kane and a brace from Erik Lamela helped Tottenham thrash Greek side Asteras Tripolis and saunter to a first win in the Europa League group-stage.

Let's start with Lamela's first goal, a 20 yard 'rabona', one of the most outrageous finishes ever seen in football. If you haven't seen it yourself, check the link below. Kane opened the scoring with a fine strikr of his own and went on to score a hattrick, with Lamela grabbing a second goal himself. It was a particularly eventful night for Kane, who ended the game in goal when keeper Hugo Lloris was sent off (with Spurs having used all three substitutes), and conceded from the first shot he faced in comical style. Still, it was a great performance and result for Mauricio Pochettino's men and they will take confidence in to the weekend clash with Newcastle.

Tottenham Hotspur welcome Greek side Asteras Tripolis to White Hart Lane on Thursday night in the Europa League and Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping his side can secure their first win in Group C at their third attempt.

Ahead of the game Pochettino confirmed the absence of full-backs Kyle Walker [pelvic] and Kyle Naughton [ankle] - both long term - although the pair are hoping to be back action by November after resuming light training. Algerian international Nabil Bentaleb has also been ruled out after missing Saturdays’ defeat to Manchester City because of an ankle problem which he suffered during the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Malawi. The full extent of the injury is not yet known although it is understood that the Tottenham midfielder could have a chance of returning on Sunday when Newcastle United arrive in London. Jan Vertonghen could be promoted from the substitutes bench after the Argentine manager denied any rift between the two while Aaron Lennon is expected to make the match-day squad.

Ryan Mason was impressive again as he made his third consecutive Premier League start against Manchester City.

Mason has come from nowhere to become a key member of Maurico Pochettino's first team in the past month, and there are signs that the midfielder could be a useful fantasy asset. The 21-year-old is playing a central role in front of Etienne Capoue, dictating the pace of Tottenham's attacks and getting himself in to the box on regular occasions, as well as showing an aptitude for breaking up the opposition. Two shots on target and a bunch of tackles and interceptions brought 12 fantasy points against Manchester City (despite being on the end of a 4-1 defeat), so we'll be monitoring his form moving forward to determine whether he can be added to the "bargain" category of midfielders to consider each week. Mason is priced at less than £4million in the Yahoo game.

Christian Eriksen continued his fine form by scoring in his second straight league match in a tough fixture, but Sergio Aguero caused Tottenham nightmares all day and Spurs would eventually lose 4-1.

Spurs are once again outclassed heavily by one of the league's premium clubs, but to be fair, the two sides traded blows and made things interesting for the first hour or so. Unfortunately, they ran up against a buzzsaw in Aguero today, who decided to put on an absolute clinic. Once Federico Fazio was sent off and Aguero converted his second penalty in three tries, it was game over. However, Spurs showed they were ready to spar early when Eriksen netted just a minute or so after City opened the scoring. Eriksen was looking more threatening than Nacer Chadli today and is the preferred fantasy option of the two going forward.

Tottenham will await the return of midfielder Nacer Chadli after he was a notable absentee for Belgium in Monday night’s away draw against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Reports post-match confirmed that Chadli had picked up a hip problem – the full extent of which is unknown – with the player facing tests on his return to White Hart Lane. The potential loss of the Belgium international would prove a huge blow having started the season on fire with four goals and one assist in his six games – almost half of Spurs total. However the lofty heights of sixth place is partly due to a solid defensive foundation with Hugo Lloris forming the cornerstone of the unit - but he [groin], like Chadli, will face further examination. The potential loss of the pair would be devastating for Tottenham who will encounter the mighty Manchester City at the Etihad in game week eight.

Ben Davies hopes international outings for Wales will help him to secure a regular first team role at Tottenham.

After a fee of approximately £10million was paid, it was widely believed that Ben Davies had been brought in to become Tottenham's new first-choice left back, but the 21-year-old has found his opportunities limited so far. Danny Rose - who signed a new five-year deal just weeks after Davies arrived - has been preferred by Mauricio Pochettino and has been performing well in the league, so it may take more than a couple of international appearances to change his manager's mind.

Hugo Lloris was commanding once again as Spurs picked up an important win and clean sheet against Southampton.

A few years ago Spurs had three players who could be placed in the "world class" bracket, namely Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and Rafael van Der Vaart, but Lloris is the only man close to that description in the current squad. The France captain is having a terrific season so far, with man-of-the-match performance at Arsenal and West Ham already, as well as producing a string of phenomenal saves in Tottenham's other fixtures. Having signed a new five-year contact in the summer, Lloris says he is focused on helping his club finish in the top four, but the hierarchy must fear what could happen if this is not achieved, with a number of Europe's top clubs queuing up to offer Champions League football to the 27-year-old.

Tottenham Hotspur grabbed three points for the first time since August by holding on to beat Southampton 1-0, courtesy of a goal by Christian Eriksen.

Spurs by no means won in convincing fashion. The match report will show that the two sides played rather evenly and the Saints, in fact, won the possession battle. However Eriksen was able to finish a chance when the opposition could not. He scored his second goal of the season in the 40th minute after being set up by a Nacer Chadli pass. Chadli would rattle a shot off the woodwork a few minutes later and continues to show consistent form this season. A rare clean sheet was the icing on the cake, though Sadio Mane did his part by scuffing a shot when he had an open look late in the match. Spurs will have their work cut out for them with a trip to the Etihad up next.

Nacer Chadli has four of Tottenham's eight goals (six games) to start the season.

Chadli's most important goal of his career to date was washed away when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain equalized for Arsenal in the North London Derby this past weekend. Nevertheless, Chadli has rightfully earned a spot in Mauricio Pochettino's starting XI. He's the leading scorer on a top 10 team who'll need continued production from him if the rest of his supporting cast keeps coming up dry. He's in form and looks to be progressing. Add him to your Yahoo Fantasy PL team while his price is still fairly reasonable.

Younes Kaboul was everywhere clearing balls, intercepting passes and providing a physical presence as Spurs managed a draw despite enjoying very little possession at the Emirates.

It was Nacer Chadli that got the goal from an Erik Lamela assist (from a terrible Mathieu Flamini error) and Hugo Lloris that provided the highlight reel save but it was Kaboul who kept showing up to blunt Arsenal attacks before they could cause any danger. The site of Kaboul heading a ball away or bodying Danny Welbeck off of a chance seemed to pop up on the screen at every critical juncture during the match.

Tottenham came from behind to knock Championship leaders Nottingham Forest out of the Capital One Cup.

Tottenham were rotten for 60 minutes as Nottingham Forest's team of youngsters outplayed their opponents before taking a deserved lead to shock White Hart Lane. The set-back forced Mauricio Pochettino in to three substitutions - bringing on Ryan Mason, Erik Lamela and Harry Kane - and all three had an impact. Firstly, young Mason stuck a fine goal from distance before Roberto Soldado scored with an instinctive finish, diverting Andros Towsend's shot in to the net to put Spurs ahead. In injury time, Lamela played a cute ball through to Kane who slotted home to complete a 3-1 victory. The result ends a run of four games without a win, but there is a far tougher test lying in wait at the Emirates on Saturday.
