Jermain Defoe scored a hat-trick as Tottenham Hotspur FC got their UEFA Europa League campaign back on track with their first win of Group J.

Defoe was a vibrant presence throughout against NK Maribor, and though his 22nd-minute opener was cancelled out just before half-time by Robert Berić, the visitors could find no reply to his two efforts after the restart. The Slovenian champions are now two points behind the English side in the section, though will be hopeful of reviving their aspirations at bottom-placed Panathinaikos FC on matchday five, when Spurs travel to leaders S.S. Lazio.
