You need these
Insert one end up the threaded shank, and tighten by using the rod inserted in the bottom end. Easily the best tool for the job.

The other tool suggested, won't fit as it's too big in such a confined space.

I'd imagine a screwdriver would do the tricket rather than a spanner for some screws...

Duck tape if it moves and shouldn't, WD40 if it doesn't move but should.

^ Torque wrench required

You need a basin wrench. About £3 for a fixed one, £5-6 for an adjustable one

I'm sure there's plenty of room there for a basin wrench.

In fact, looking at the picture, I'd fancy getting a regular spanner in there X)

With that tool I suggested, there's no need to find the size 1st. It's designed specifically for monobloc taps and has at least 4 of the most usual sizes. You can buy a bigger set with more sizes. The nuts are usually 8,9,10 or 11mm.

For future reference you'd get a better response posting in Ask rather misc.
