Mauricio Pochettino expects tears to flow when Spurs leave White Hart Lane

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has admitted that today's final match at White Hart Lane will be a "sad occasion" but is adamant that he will make his mark at the new stadium.

Tottenham must first play at Wembley while their new 800 million pounds ($1 billion) 61,559-seater stadium is built and their recent record there makes worrying reading.

The club put on a grand show of celebration for the last match, with the diggers set to move in on Monday and demolish the stadium Tottenham have called home since 1899.

Pochettino added: "But next season, there's no excuse. For now it is to say to the fans and everyone that we will give our best and try to fight again next season to try to win the league". When you look at our points tally compared to last season, obviously we're disappointed losing out on the title but we are growing.

"When I arrived here, one of the mistakes I made was that I said the size of White Hart Lane maybe doesn't help us in the way we want to play", Pochettino said.

"When you play Premier League you take it seriously and they will come here to compete". Eric Bailly is now available to start, given that the Ivorian is suspended for the Europa League final. It's so hard now to win at the end but before West Ham we believed it was possible.

Saracens retain European title with victory over Clermont
The defeat for Clermont is their third from three in the final of a European flagship competition after 2012-13 and 2014-15. As impressive as Saracens were playing, it was doing nothing to generate a buzz among the 55,272-strong Murrayfield crowd.

Defeat at Tottenham with a much-changed team ensured United will finish outside the top four just as it did under Louis van Gaal last season, with Champions League qualification now depending on beating Ajax in the Europa League final. "But if we can be as focused and fluent as today then it will be hard (for Middlesbrough)".

"I'm very, very happy with the performance of all the players".

"But the good thing is that we are very focused in trying to develop different things, to try to be in the same level as them without investing the same money as them". But there was also a boring 0-0 draw with them two years later, when my son was born on derby day and Gazza told the fans I'd called him Alfie. For us it's more important to win titles than to finish top four.

The Premier League paid tribute to some of the gifted players that played at the lane with the likes of Glenn Hoddle, Bill Nicholson, Ricky Villa, Ossie Ardiles, Jürgen Klinsmann and Gareth Bale all appearing in this rousing video. If we can win a third title [of the season] it will be magnificent for us.

Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker is reportedly open to leaving the club amid transfer interest from Manchester United and Manchester City this summer.
