Pochettino: Win over Manchester United the "perfect" farewell to White Hart Lane

Construction work continues on the new stadium

Perhaps more significantly, White Hart Lane's pristine playing surface has now been completely ripped up after Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane earned Spurs a 2-1 win over United - a fitting farewell to a stadium that has seen countless memorable matches down the years.

Harry Kane and Dele Alli delight in Tottenham's victory over Manchester United in the final match at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham, for its part, is guaranteed to finish the season in second place, the team's highest position since 1963.

"What a way to finish".

After the game, a closing ceremony displayed a video of the story of White Hart Lane and 48 club legends were paraded on the pitch under a rainbow and confetti as the club said an emotional goodbye to their home.

The result means that Spurs have confirmed a second-place Premier League finish and are unbeaten at home this season.

Plenty of the best players to have played for the club at their magnificent home ground were present at the game and paid tribute to the stadium.

"However, it is also a sombre occasion upon which the club formally hands over its home of 118 years - one filled with so many special memories for us". We had to do it because, if I have Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Tim Fosu-Mensah, if I have these guys, I can rotate, I can go for every match.

"I'm proud of all my team-mates and just happy for all the staff and the fans".

West Ham delivered a massive blow in Spurs' hopes of winning a maiden Premier League title with a 1-0 win at the London Stadium last week, which set Chelsea on their way to the championship with back-to-back wins over Middlesbrough and West Brom.

"I'm very, very happy with the performance of all the players". It's true that in the moment we start to play in the new stadium with new facilities I think the club will move to the last step and to the last level.

"We have a very bright future, with a team and squad who are hungry to learn, win and get better".

"So if we can win a third title, or like you like to say a second title, if we can do that it would be magnificent for us because we know that it's a big objective".
