IN a bumper morning of Uefa Champions League action, Tottenham pulled off an incredible win over Real Madrid, the European champions, while Manchester City and Liverpool both picked up victories.

With Real playing at Wembley for the first time in their history, Dele Alli scored twice and Christian Eriksen grabbed another in a convincing 3-1 display.

The capacity crowd was rocking when Alli prodded home a first-half opener after a well-worked attack involving Harry Winks and Kieran Trippier and the young star made it 2-0 via a deflected shot.

Eriksen scored a breakaway goal to make it 3-0.

There was just enough time for Cristiano Ronaldo to add a goal to his name after a miserable night for him and his team.

Alli saluted Tottenham's win as a sign of the club's arrival as rivals to the established continental heavyweights in what was a famous win over the 12-time European champions to take Spurs into the last 32.

"It was a fantastic display by us," Alli told BT Sport.

"We knew if we stuck to our game plan and were solid at the back then we'd get chances. We're very happy with the result.

"We don't want to just compete with these teams -- we want to beat them. I'm happy to get two goals, but more importantly it was a win."

In Italy, Sergio Aguero became Manchester City's all time record goalscorer with a vital and clinical counter-attack to edge past Napoli 4-2.

Aguero's winner took his City tally to 178 and helped book a spot in the knockout phase.

Lorenzo Insigne had put Napoli ahead midway through the first half following a nice exchange with Dries Mertens but City quickly equalized in the 34th with a header from Nicolas Otamendi before John Stones put City ahead with another header early in the second half.

Napoli responded with a solid run of pressure and Leroy Sane fouled Raul Albiol to set up a penalty for Jorginho that made it 2-2. Raheem Sterling added another for City in stoppage time.

Just two weeks after putting seven goals past Maribor, Liverpool played hosts to the Slovenian minnows.

And in an incredible first half, the Reds mustered up 83% possession yet went into the break goalless.

Liverpool cut loose after half-time to win 3-0 and take a one-point lead in Group E.
