Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has urged his side to complete a clean sweep of victories in the group stages of the Europa League.

Spurs take on Anzhi Makhachkala at White Hart Lane tonight having won all five of their Group K matches to cruise through to the knockout stages of the competition.

They had to wait until the final game of the group section to secure their place in the knockout stages last season but have found it much easier this time round.

The Russians are also guaranteed of a place in the next round but Villas-Boas is keen to ensure his players take the contest seriously.

"Another win would be brilliant for us," he said.

"It would really complete a good group run, completely different to the one we had last year.

"It would be good to finish on 18 points. We are qualified and Anzhi are as well.

"They go on a two-month break now for their winter break, so all of this adds to special circumstances in a game.

"But we will try to motivate our players to focus on a win and achieve 18 points and go through the game without any injuries."
