Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane’s goals earned Tottenham victory over Manchester United in their final game at White Hart Lane.

Spurs will have their new stadium built on the same site, which is planned to be used in their 2018-19 campaign. In for the meantime will play their home matches at Wembley next season.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino’s side left White Hart Lane, on a high by staying unbeaten there this season and securing second spot in the Premier League. The club had been using White Hart Lane for 118 years.

Wanyama opened the scoring with a header five minutes in, and Kane doubled their lead early in the second half.

Captain Wayne Rooney gave the Reds hope by scoring a goal of his own, but were unable to follow through and gave the victory to the Spurs

Defeat means United cannot finish in the top four.

They can still qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League.

Tottenham’s title chances ended last week with their defeat by West Ham, and the trophy went to Chelsea on Friday.

With a Champions League place already guaranteed, Pochettino said their final home match was all about making it a special day for the fans.

What they said:

Tottenham boss Pochettino said after his side’s win: “The fans have been fantastic all season. They have helped us a lot during the whole season. It was fantastic, the team played to win.

“Of course we will miss it a lot because White Hart Lane is special but at the same time we welcome the new stadium.”
