AEK Athens 1-2 Leicester - Watch Replay
Leicester made it two wins from two in the Europa League thanks to goals from Jamie Vardy and Hamza Choudhury.
Vardy, aged 33, became Leicester City’s oldest European goal scorer when he fired home from the spot and the Foxes looked comfortable when Choudhury made it two.
Muamer Tankovic gave AEK hope after the break but Brendan Rodgers’ side held to extend their perfect record in Europe.
Royal Antwerp 1-0 Tottenham - Watch Replay
Tottenham suffered a shock defeat to Royal Antwerp in Group J after a mistake from Ben Davies allowed Lior Refaelov to smash past Hugo Lloris.
It was an uncharacteristically lacklustre display from Spurs who had embarked on a 10-match unbeaten run after losing on the opening day of the season.
Jose Mourinho called for reinforcements in the second half in the form of deadly duo Harry Kane and Son-Heung Min, but they couldn’t breach the Belgian league leaders’ disciplined defence.
Lille 2-2 Celtic - Watch Replay
Celtic let slip a two-goal half time lead to draw 2-2 with Ligue 1 side Lille.
Neil Lennon’s side looked on course to record their first victory in four games when Mohamed Elyounoussi netted an outstanding double, but the French side hit back after the break.
Zeki Celik and Jonathan Ikone scored for the hosts to salvage a point and preserve their unbeaten start to the season. The visitors are third in Group H after the draw.

Rangers 1-0 Lech Poznan - Watch Replay
Rangers extended their perfect start to the Europa League season with a laboured 1-0 win over Polish visitors Lech Poznan.
After an uneventful first half, substitute Alfredo Morelos secured a crucial win when he headed home from close range after meeting a superb cross from Borna Barisic.
The goal takes the Colombian striker level with Rangers legend Ally McCoist on goals scored in Europe and the win moves Rangers to second place, level on points with Benfica.

Arsenal 3-0 Dundalk - Watch Replay
Dundalk were beaten but by no means disgraced. They defended manfully before three quick-fire Arsenal goals either side of half time condemned the Irish side to a second successive European defeat.
Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock and Nicolas Pepe did the damage for Mikel Arteta’s men who, in the end, extended their blemish-free start to the European season with relative ease.
The Gunners are top of Group B ahead of next week’s meeting with Molde while Dundalk are rock bottom.
