Tottenham sailed into the Europa League round of 16 with a 4-0 win over Austrian side Wolfsberger on Wednesday evening.

Spurs secured a 8-1 aggregate victory after a comfortable away success at the Puskas Arena last Thursday, and head into Friday's draw as one of the favourites to win the competition.

Dele Alli opened the scoring just after the ten-minute mark with a wonderful overhead kick to all but end Wolfsberger's slim hopes of a fairytale comeback.

He then turned provider for Carlos Vinicius in the second half, whipping a cross to the back post for the Brazilian to head home.

Gareth Bale then came off the bench to thump one in from close range, before Vinicius grabbed his second late on.

Here are your player ratings from Tottenham Hotspur Stadium...

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Joe Hart would still make the most noise in the stadium even if fans were in attendance

Joe Hart (GK) - 6/10 - Typically vocal, but had little to do.

Matt Doherty (RB) - 6/10 - Has had a difficult debut season in north London, but wasn't horrendous tonight. Got an assist, too.

Toby Alderweireld (CB) - 6/10 - Dragged out of position a couple of times but recovered well to nullify any real danger.

Eric Dier (CB) - 6/10 - Needed a quiet performance after a disastrous one on Sunday and had just that, bar one shove that had Wolfsberger appealing for a soft penalty.

Ben Davies (LB) - 7/10 - Think of the most Ben Davies performance imaginable, and then add an assist.

2. Midfielders

Moussa Sissoko (CM) - 6/10 - Tried to play with a bit more flair and creativity against weaker opposition. Didn't always come off but at least he tried.

Harry Winks (CM) - 6/10 - The metronome in midfield. Nothing special but it's not like he had to be.

Dele Alli (AM) - 9/10 - One wonderful goal, two neat assists and a mature performance from a man trying to win his place back in Spurs' strongest XI.

3. Forwards

Erik Lamela (RW) - 7/10 - The Thursday night Maradona played like he had the ball on a string and created a couple of decent openings.

Carlos Vinicius (ST) - 9/10 - Looked quite stiff on the ball, but was always a menace and was deserving of his goals.

Steven Bergwijn (LW) - 7/10 - Had the confidence to take on his man each time, performance just lacked a goal.

4. Substitutes

Gareth Bale (RW) - 7/10 - Emphatic finish just after coming on, and looks likely to play a more prominent role in the run-in

Lucas Moura (LW) - 6/10

Marcel Lavinier (RB) - N/A

Dane Scarlett (ST) - N/A

Nile John (CM) - N/A
