After the interval, the Tottenham hero made it 2-0 after scoring his 22nd goal of this season but Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney squeezed the difference with just 20 minutes remaining.

Goals from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane ensured victory in Spurs' last-ever match at their home since 1899 and the final whistle was greeted by a pitch invasion by some of the 31,500 supporters inside the stadium for the final time.

Pochettino said; "It was a very emotional game and ceremony". It's so hard to speak about it and to describe it.

"Of course there's going to be transfer rumours over the summer, but I think I'd be very surprised if most of us are not still here next season".

"Because of my respect for them (Tottenham), I didn't rest more people", said Mourinho, whose side visit Southampton on Wednesday.

Speaking to SFR Sport on Sunday, he said: "I've been at Tottenham for five years, and I've always found White Hart Lane unique".

"To be honest it's another game against Tottenham".

Manchester United, on the other hand, now find a top four place out of reach, with success in the Europa League final against Ajax their only chance of booking a place in next season's Champions League.

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 am not too anxious, I don't think the players are too anxious". He concluded by looking to the future saying that "now we have to focus on the last two games", adding "All we can say is that next season we will give our best and try to win the league". Mauricio Pochettino's men are guaranteed second place and are (1.82) to win with Bet9ja, in their last game at White Hart Lane.

Kane told Sky Sports: "What a way to finish".

"We've got to use this as motivation to get there".

"It is true we are disappointed when you are close and fighting to win the Premier League", he said.

Spurs only confirmed their switch to Wembley at the end of last month and the club have been keen to emphasise they are only taking on a new stadium in 2018-19, rather than moving to a different location.
