Pochettino proud of players after securing Champions League place

Pochettino proud of players after securing Champions League place

However, Spurs held strong and Kane, like so often, proved to be the hero, netting in the 50th minute.

Kenedy then drilled a low shot just wide to the left of the goal before substitute Jacob Murphy burst down the left flank and found himself one-on-one with Lloris, only to fire over the crossbar from close range as the equaliser that would have delighted the travelling fans and kept Tottenham's Champions League hopes in the balance never arrived.

The pivotal moment coming on 14 minutes.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino described a return to Champions League football at the club's new 62,000 capacity stadium next season as "massively important" after securing a top four finish on Wednesday.

"They have maybe one good chance and score a goal".

The home fans' nervousness regarding their league position was clear with the groans in the first half and they also cheered loudly when the result at Stamford Bridge became clear.

England manager Gareth Southgate will no doubt be keeping a close eye on Tottenham's medical updates, with the World Cup in Russian Federation only five weeks away.

"It will be another challenge, another massive challenge because it will be the same as it was to play at Wembley".

"The last game against Watford, in the first half we didn't play well, but, in the second half, we had a great reaction".

They defended well for the most part, with Spurs limited to just a handful of chances, and attacked with intensity.

Kane's clinical finish showed a top-class striker is the biggest difference between the two sides and will only add to Benitez's claims pre-match that the club need to break their transfer record to sign one in the summer.

Earlier, Arsene Wenger's penultimate game in charge of Arsenal ended in depressingly familiar fashion as the 10-man Gunners went down to Leicester City 1-3 in their away fixture.

Pochettino described Trippier last week as "one of the best English players in the Premier League", saying "assists, playing passes, crosses - he is one of the best".

Undeterred, Newcastle applied yet more pressure on the Spurs defence and Lloris had to slide at the feet of Ritchie to prevent him from equalising in a crowded penalty area just before the hour mark.

"Now, after 23 years in the Premier League, this is the first time Tottenham are above the other London clubs".
