Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino had made seven changes to his side and it was Victor Wanyama that broke the deadlock striding into the box from Fernando Llorente poorly controlled touch to round the keeper.

Lucas Moura then added the second a couple of minutes after the opening goal with a strike across Ben Hamer and added two more with the last minutes of the game.

“I have no words to explain this moment,” Lucas said. “I’m happy first for my team. We did very well today with a good performance and, of course, to score my first hat-trick here in the new stadium with my family and son here… I am so happy.” He told Reuters.

Tottenham takes a 1-0 advantage to Manchester City in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg and wasn’t far from the forward’s mind.

“Now we have a good battle in Manchester; we need from now to recover for this game and prepare very well,” he added. “It will be so hard there but if we play like we did today we can go there and get a good result and we can qualify.”
