Round-up: Europa League – Liverpool and Tottenham win but Celtic are on the brink

Tottenham survived a scare from Belgian side Anderlecht as they ran out 2-1 winners at White Heart Lane, thanks to a superb late strike from Mousa Dembele. Clearly heartened by taking three points off Spurs at home, the Belgians should have probably been ahead inside four minutes, but Jan Vertonghen recovered well to make a crucial tackle on striker Stefano Okaka inside the six-yard box, before Steven Defour also went close.

Profile: Anthony Martial

Eyebrows were raised when Manchester United splashed out £36 million on Monaco forward Anthony Martial in the aftermath of their 2-1 defeat to Swansea City on Sunday. The 19-year old Frenchman is a relative unknown quantity having made just 52 top-flight league appearances in his fledgling career, and the move is certainly one of the most intriguing transfers to have gone through this summer. Now the most expensive teenager in the...
