Harry Kane expects Tottenham stars to stay

23 May, 2017, 13:21 | Author: Lula Armstrong

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 think it was a very emotional game and emotional ceremony".

Tottenham will have to get over their Wembley jitters to do that - considering they are playing the entire campaign at the home of English football next season - but the future certainly looks bright as their new stadium takes shape.

Pochettino says that these are the moments that will permanently stand out among his memories of the stadium.

United were the opposition for the 2,533rd match at White Hart Lane, 118 years after Tottenham first hosted Notts County here and won the game 4-1. Spurs will play their home league games next season at Wembley with the view to moving into their new home for the 2018/19 season.

A sea of flags welcomed the sides out along with a remarkable din - atmosphere that showed few signs of letting up as Spurs bid a memorable farewell to White Hart Lane.


Tottenham made the breakthrough in the sixth minute thanks to Victor Wanyama's emphatic header.

"What a way to finish", Kane told Sky Sports. [I'd thought before the game that] to score the winning goal or something like that would be special, and for it to happen is just awesome.

All season, the new ground has been springing up, eating into a corner of the crumbling White Hart Lane. It was another great performance at White Hart Lane and now we have to focus on the last two games.

"It's an unbelievable stadium and we just have to make sure we feel comfortable there", midfielder Dele Alli said.

"To be unbeaten at White Hart Lane in the last season here is something to be happy with", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said. "We've just got to keep it going, keep working hard, keep getting better and hopefully next season we'll finish first".

"We were simply trying to find balance, even with some players not in their best position, trying to organise a team to give minutes to people who need minutes and protecting people who needed to be protected".
