Spurs beats Man United in stadium finale to secure 2nd spot

(Paul Harding/PA via AP). Talisman Harry Kane, quite fittingly, netted their final White Hart Lane goal early in the second half.

All of that, said Pochettino, contributed to this day being the one that he'll remember the most from his three years at White Hart Lane.

NAN reports that the loss means Jose Mourinho's men can not now finish in the top four to get a place in the UEFA Champions League.

Tottenham locked down second place by beating Manchester United 2-1 in its final game before leaving its north London home of 118 years.

In the unlikely event Arsenal lose at home to relegated Sunderland on Tuesday then Liverpool will clinch a top four spot without playing. Hull joined Sunderland and Middlesbrough in dropping into the second tier after losing 4-0 at Crystal Palace. But the final match at the Lane, with all the energy, enthusiasm, and emotions, were more than enough to motivate Spurs to close their stadium on the highest of notes.

"It was unbelievable. It was the flawless send-off", he added.

Victor Wanyama had the home side ahead inside the opening 10 minutes of the contest and Harry Kane's goal just after half-time put the result beyond doubt, despite a consolation tap-in for Wayne Rooney.

Brazil's health ministry lifts Zika state of emergency
She tested positive for the virus and did report mosquito bites, but said she hadn't had any symptoms related to Zika infection. The BBC have recorded around 95% less cases between this January and April, compared to the same time past year in 2016.

The players are now looking to the future.

It was Spurs' 14th successive home league win - equalling the club record, set over two seasons in 1987 - and meant they finished a league campaign unbeaten at home for the first time since 1964-65.

"That's got to be the next celebration", Kane said of Tottenham's title ambitions.

"We were simply trying to find balance, even with some players not in their best position, trying to organise a team to give minutes to people who need minutes and protecting people who needed to be protected".

"To finish strong and finish unbeaten here is something special".

He added: "It was special out there on Sunday, but imagine what it would be like winning a Premier League, or winning an FA Cup or a Champions League or something?"

Chelsea were crowned champions after their win at West Bromwich Albion on Friday, but Tottenham had the ideal occasion to forget that frustration as they prepare to temporarily play at Wembley while the Lane is demolished to make way for a new arena. The fans were fantastic, like all season, the energy and the atmosphere was great.
