Farewell to the Lane

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Manchester United
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.

The teams walked out to a display of flags around the ground, Spurs legends including Chris Waddle and Glenn Hoddle were invited as special guests, and local musical duo Chas and Dave provided half-time entertainment.

And the Tottenham players gave supporters a first-half performance to remember.

Ben Davies’ sublime cross was headed home by Wanyama to give Spurs the early advantage, and they could have extended their lead before the break had goalkeeper David de Gea not denied Son Heung-min and Kane.

Five minutes into the second half, the hosts doubled their lead. Eriksen’s free-kick curled into the path of Kane and he out-smarted defender Chris Smalling to poke home his first goal against United.

Spurs’ performance dropped off after that, but they managed to hold on – despite Rooney’s goal giving them a scare.

For a better society
