Spurs Beat Man Utd In White Hart Lane Finale

By  |  0 Comments

Tottenham played their last match at White Hart Lane with victory over Manchester United with goals Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane

Spurs plan to have their new stadium, built on the same site, ready for the 2018-19 campaign and will play their home matches at Wembley next season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side left their current ground, where they have spent 118 years, on a high by staying unbeaten there this season and securing second spot in the Premier League.

Wanyama got Spurs off to the best possible start with a header five minutes in and Kane doubled their lead early in the second half, flicking home from a Christian Eriksen free-kick.

Captain Wayne Rooney gave United hope of a recovery when he poked in from Anthony Martial’s low cross, but they were unable to spoil the leaving party.

Defeat means Jose Mourinho’s men cannot now finish in the top four.

They can still qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League, but Mourinho will have to settle for fifth or sixth place in his first season at the club.
