Harry Kane victor takes Tottenham Hotspurs to Champions League

  • Real Madrid are monitoring Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino while Chelsea are also admirers

Jonjo Shelvey smashed a free-kick from the edge of the box off the post before Hugo Lloris produced a fine flying save to his right to parry a powerful header from Jamaal Lascelles.

Spurs were handed an incredibly tough draw from pot 3 this season, but emerged as group winners ahead of Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Apoel Nicosia.

Spurs came out in the second half firing and they were rewarded nearly immediately when Kane put them ahead within five minutes.

But Kane proved to be their talisman once more as his 39th goal of the season just after half-time was enough to move Spurs above Liverpool into third.

Liverpool will definitely be in pot 3 if they qualify and do not win the Champions League this season.

Undeterred, Newcastle applied yet more pressure on the Spurs defence and Lloris had to slide at the feet of Ritchie to prevent him from equalising in a crowded penalty area just before the hour mark.

"I say a massive congratulations and a massive thank you to all of the staff because they were fantastic and working so hard for almost 38 games away from home in the Premier League".

It'll now mean Tottenham, assuming they get through the qualifier if they finish fourth, will participate in their third straight Champions League campaign as they get to grips with their new stadium. To play with pressure against a team who have freedom and nothing to play for, it can be unsafe.




"They have maybe one good chance and score a goal".

Shelvey was unfortunate with his free-kick and Lascelles came close with his header while Ayoze Perez and Dwight Gayle both had hard chances in the first half.

Kane's clinical finish showed a top-class striker is the biggest difference between the two sides and will only add to Benitez's claims pre-match that the club need to break their transfer record to sign one in the summer.

"It's not easy to carry on with five games to play".

"Now after 23 years in the Premier League Tottenham are above all the London clubs".

Spurs have now finished above the rest of the capital's clubs for the first time since the 1994-95 season.

A run of only one win from four league matches and a defeat to relegated West Brom left Mauricio Pochettino's men needing a drastic improvement against the Magpies but their performance lacked conviction and key players failed to deliver.
