Harry Kane delivers a victory for Tottenham against Newcastle United

  • Tottenham striker Harry Kane

Harry Kane scored the only goal as Tottenham secured a top-four finish and qualification for next season's Champions League with victory over Newcastle at Wembley.

It would have saved the crowd any last minute nerves - but instead it was the news from Stamford Bridge that Chelsea could only draw with Huddersfield, a result which meant Spurs could not be caught, kick started the party.

The visitors probed late on to find a leveler, although it was Spurs who went closest in the final moments but Danny Rose could only fire straight at Dubravka, but it didn't matter as Kane's goal was enough to guarantee Tottenham Champions League football at their new stadium for next season.

- Since losing their opening Premier League home game at Wembley this season, Spurs have lost just one of the last 17 (W12 D4).

"Today I am thinking to try to enjoy what we achieve".

A fourth consecutive defeat was harsh on Newcastle, whose craft and positivity belied their mid-table status and whose determination suggested they were chasing much more than ninth place - a position that is now out of reach for them this season.

The lead lasted just 13 minutes though as Marcos Alonso levelled when Cesar Azpilicueta's cross was drilled against the full-back and rebounded into the net.

City, who notched a 105th of the campaign through Fernandinho after the break, can now become the first English top-flight team to finish a season with a century of points and 32 wins should they prevail at Southampton on Sunday.

The win guaranteed Mauricio Pochettino's men a place in the UEFA Champions League, with Chelsea being held by Huddersfield on the same night.

"We do need to question ourselves and realise that the next two games are very important for the future of the club and the future of every player in the dressing room". I want to say thank you for how professional he was all season.

"Now, after 23 years in the Premier League, this is the first time Tottenham are above the other London clubs. We showed character and we showed we are strong as a team".

The game also saw Kenedy make the final appearance of his loan from Chelsea.

Toure was an inspirational figure in City's first two title wins of a free-spending era under Sheikh Mansour's ownership.

Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho were on the scoresheet for City, who overcame Brighton's early equaliser through Leonardo Ulloa.

Spurs, now in third, could dip to fourth below Liverpool on the final day but are assured of a Champions League spot after Chelsea dropped points against Huddersfield Town.
