“His record speaks for itself, he has been keeping himself sharp and fit and he has been excellent again tonight,” Villas-Boas told ITV.

Substitute Christian Eriksen fired in a third four minutes from time, the Denmark playmaker’s first for Tottenham following his transfer from Ajax.

Victory came at a cost for the Londoners, however, with Danny Rose limping off with an ankle problem, Mousa Dembele carried off on a stretcher after a heavy challenge and Younes Kaboul leaving the field injured in the closing minutes.

In other matches, Spaniard Jonatan Soriano hit a hat-trick for FC Salzburg as the Austrian league leaders thumped Sweden’s Elfsborg 4-0 in Group C.

ACF Fiorentina also eased to a 3-0 win at home to Pacos Ferreira in Group E and Rubin Kazan romped to a 5-2 Group D victory over Maribor in Slovenia.
