Tottenham player ratings v Manchester United: Wanyama dominates the midfield

Spurs chairman bids fond farewell to White Hart Lane

Spurs chairman bids fond farewell to White Hart Lane

They have closed a glorious chapter of WHL in fantastic style, beating United and more importantly, without losing a single game this season at home in the Premier League.

Spurs dominated from the start and were ahead after only six minutes when Victor Wanyama, a Kenyan-born Man United fan, who cost only £9 million from Southampton and whose wages are a third of United's biggest earners, headed his side ahead.

The official Tottenham twitter account tweeted prior to the match: "Please do not go on the pitch at any point today throughout the match and the pots-match ceremony". Spurs will play at Wembley Stadium next season with a move to a newly built stadium for the 2018-19 campaign.

But it was Tottenham's day as they finished the season unbeaten at home in the league. Next season we will feel it is our home.

A trip to Southampton on Wednesday is followed by the last game of the season at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday, and Juan Mata has urged his team-mates to step up.

"When people say we gamble (with the team selection at Tottenham), we didn't gamble, we didn't choose the Europa League".

"I said to myself this would be the hardest one, given the quality of the teams we had to play on the run-in", Allardyce said.

Mourinho made eight changes to the side that reached the Europa League final in midweek with a 1-1 draw against Celta Vigo at Old Trafford and they were no match for a home side who would have scored more but for the saves of David de Gea.

The victory allowed Mauricio Pochettino's squad to join the party after the match. Im very, very happy with the performance of all the players.

Mourinho will not be overly pleased with how his side's fringe players performed, however, and he could very well decide to shuffle his line-up again when they take on Southampton on Thursday morning AEST, with Crystal Palace awaiting next week in their final league game before the clash with the Eredivisie giants. Talisman Harry Kane, quite fittingly, netted their final White Hart Lane goal early in the second half.

Defeat confirmed that United now can not finish in the top four and must instead hope for victory against Ajax in the Europa League final next week if they are to secure a Champions League berth for next season.

The Full Time Devils interviewed a selection of United fans leaving White Hart Lane following Sunday's contest and the consensus was pretty clear - Mourinho is yet to learn what the club's fans expect from their team. Although there was to be no trophy this season, despite their best efforts, they achieved something they hadn't done in 52 seasons - an unbeaten league season.
