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

Tottenham Hotspur said good bye to White Hart Lane after 118 years at the famous ground following a 2-1 win against Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Tottenham Hotspur are playing their last ever home match at White Hart Lane after their 112 year stay at the stadium.

Goals from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane gave the Lilywhites a 2-0 lead and though Wayne Rooney pulled one back for the visitors, Pochettino's mean held on for a win which guarantees second place - Tottenham's highest league finish since 1963.

"What a way to finish".

Legends like Ledley King, David Ginola, Glenn Hoddle, Cliff Jones, Teddy Sheringham, Pat Jennings and Ossie Ardiles attended on Sunday and the demolition of White Hart Lane has already begun with Spurs set to play home matches at Wembley next season. I said before I d love to score the winning goal and for it to happen is brilliant. I did not think we were far short of winning the title but the team broke up that summer.

"It is sad to see White Hart Lane go, it has been an fantastic stadium for us - especially this season, finishing unbeaten", Kane said.

"This is our last time at the Lane and the day on which we shall bid our grand old home a fond farewell".

"Tottenham deserved this victory but chants from the United fans stating Spurs "nearly won the league" is a timely reminder of what the really big clubs consider important", Crooks wrote on BBC Sport. It's emotional now, I'm sure when we all get home it will start to sink in a little.

It wasn't so memorable for the "Special One", with Mourinho's hopes of qualifying for the Champions League with United now resting on beating Ajax in the Europa League final later this month.

Chelsea were crowned champions after their win at West Bromwich Albion on Friday, but Tottenham had the ideal occasion to forget that frustration as they prepare to temporarily play at Wembley while the Lane is demolished to make way for a new arena.

"Though today is tinged with sadness, we are all excited about the new stadium and the journey ahead of us", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

Rooney's 71st-minute strike briefly punctured the festivities amid a downpour, but the sun returned and Tottenham closed out the final minutes in the stadium of its best campaign since 1962-63 before a parade of club greats on the field.

"You cannot play against Arsenal, you can't play against Man City or Southampton and play four or five kids".
