Europa League report and highlights: Tottenham 4-1 Anzhi – Roberto Soldado bags first hat-trick for Spurs

Roberto Soldado kick-started his Tottenham career with a sublime hat-trick to make it six wins from six for Andre Villas-Boas in the Europa League.

Soldado had struggled since his £26million move from Valencia in the summer, scoring just once from open play in the Barclays Premier League, but he tore Anzhi Makhachkala apart on Thursday night as Spurs ran out easy 4-1 winners at White Hart Lane.

Soldado glanced Gylfi Sigurdsson's shot beyond Evgeni Pomazan and he beat the Anzhi goalkeeper again from close range before scoring from the spot for the fourth time this season to seal his hat-trick.
