Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Newcastle United

  • West Brom players celebrate after Jake Livermore's injury-time winner against Tottenham

Mauricio Pochettino praised a "massive achievement" for Tottenham 's after a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United secured their place in next season's Champions League.

Their indifferent form of late had seen many label them as "chokers" and while this was far from a convincing performance, the fact that fifth-placed Chelsea could only draw against Huddersfield Town at home on Wednesday night meant that Spurs are guaranteed a top-four finish.

"The first step is to be competitive, to reduce the gap with the top four, and that was the challenge four years ago".

Spurs have one more game at Wembley on Sunday when they face Leicester before returning to the Lane next season.

Pochettino appreciates the players and staff will take some time to settle into their new surroundings.

Meyer is out of contract this summer, with his Schalke deal running down and a new challenge seemingly inevitable but, with his pick of clubs given his innate talent and his potential, the young German is not going to move to a side where he needs to fight tooth and nail just for a few minutes on the field.




"We play a team that were playing for nothing and so deep and sometimes it is hard to have patience to play and build and to try to win".

'This group have the experience to make it feel like home'. "I want to congratulate the players first of all and then I want to congratulate the staff that make it possible". We can not feel the same as we did at White Hart Lane or (how we will) in our new stadium. When we talk about the squad and how important it is in the season to respect them and treat them in the right way and today they were present and they played so well and they are part of the success of the team to finish in the top four for the third-consecutive time.

If you thought Kane was the standout player for Spurs, however, you couldn't be more off the mark as it was captain and custodian Hugo Lloris who singlehandedly kept the Lilywhites in the game with save after save. "To create a winning mentality you must build it step by step, then be competitive with the big sides".

The breakthrough for Spurs came just after the break, though, when Kane scored with a sidefooted shot into the top corner for his 28th league goal of the season after fine build-up play involving Dele Alli and South Korean Son.

They have played this season at Wembley Stadium. "As I said, it's been tough but I'm delighted we've finished it off well".
