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

17 May 2017

Goalkeeping great Pat Jennings and Steve Perryman, the club's former skipper who made a record 436 appearances at White Hart Lane from 1969-86, continued the roll call while some of the loudest cheers were reserved for 1980s maestros Osvaldo Ardiles and Glenn Hoddle.

We felt like we could beat anybody but we just played too many games in the end. Next season we will feel it is our home. "The Lane has been home to some of the most unbelievable moments in the history of not just our club but in the history of football".

Ginola tweeted: "Farewell, goodbye White Hart Lane. The preparation of the game, the game we played well, and we got three points, and at the end, all the ceremony was fantastic, to share with all the legends, the people, the staff, the fans, with the family, I think it will be always for me the most special day, the last day at White Hart Lane". Their brief Europa League campaign ended with a 2-2 Wembley draw against Gent, while Chelsea put them to the sword in last month's FA Cup semifinal; it's clear there is an issue that must be addressed in the minds of Pochettino's young players.

A rainbow appears as fans invade the pitch after the English Premier League soccer match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United at White Hart Lane stadium in London, Sunday, May 14, 2017.

"What a way to finish", Kane said.

"It's a special bond and I don't think you always get that at clubs, that's why we've got to hold onto that, make that motivate us to hopefully be out there next year at Wembley lifting a Premier League together". "For me it was a very exciting day because I think it was flawless". Thanks for the memories.

"But at the same time we welcome the new stadium". Tuanzebe chased his man all over the pitch before being substituted on the hour but the problem for the 20-year-old, starting only his second top-division fixture, was he could not stop Eriksen taking corners and free-kicks.

Pochettino believes that finishing second and the new stadium coming will give them the platform to push on even further. he said: "We believe that when the new stadium opens it's doors it will help the cub to achieve the last level".

Tottenham had the best players on the pitch in every department, and the mark of their progress is that none of the United starting XI would get into Pochettino's team.

Once the game kicked off, Tottenham's fans were in full voice.

Victor Wanyama handed Spurs an early lead, before Harry Kane doubled their lead after the break.

Some of the biggest cheers, however, were saved for half-time when Chas & Dave - real names Chas Hodges and Dave Peacock - were presented to the crowd.
