White Hart Lane finale 'unbelievable' - Kane

White Hart Lane finale 'unbelievable' - Kane

Many observers feel Tottenham will not be as strong next season due to leaving their home stadium, with Wembley a far cry from the tight pitch and intense atmosphere of White Hart Lane, where they dropped just four points in 2016-17.

The win over United guaranteed Tottenham will finish second in the top flight for the first time since 1963.

"We were talking a lot and we believe that when the new stadium opens the doors, it will help the club to reach the last level", Pochettino, whose side racked up a 14th consecutive home league win, told reporters.

One key factor that has played out in Manchester United's exit from the intense race for Europe was the consistent results of the likes of neighbors Manchester City and Arsenal, who are both rediscovering their form in the closing stages of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur played their last game at their old stadium on Sunday, beating Manchester United 2-1 thanks to goals from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane.

In its 118 year history, White Hart Lane has seen numerous wonderful performances and Pochettino believes that this one was "another great performance at White Hart Lane". Because all together we worked so hard together to achieve all that we have achieved this season.

Worries remain about what the effect of playing at Wembley next season will have on a side who have been unbeatable at home this season, but Pochettino believes the fact that they will be playing in a new 61,000-seater stadium adjacent to their current ground in 2018-19 will take the club to the next level. It was just our performances on them days weren't great.

He concluded by looking to the future saying that "now we have to focus on the last two games", adding "All we can say is that next season we will give our best and try to win the league".

Spurs have struggled at the stadium during their Champions League campaign and were also beaten there by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Gary Neville doesn't expect Harry Kane to leave Tottenham Hotspur before Spurs move into their new stadium.

"We finished obviously third last season, second this year - we've got to try and take that next step and try and finish first".
