Huddersfield safe as Spurs seal Champions League spot

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was bursting with pride after seeing his side book a third successive season in the Champions League.

The Lillywhites adopted the Wembley Stadium as their home ground this season, due to redevelopment works going on at the White Hart Lane.

Kane netted his 28th Premier League goal of the season five minutes after the restart as Spurs leapfrogged Liverpool into third place and moved four points clear of Chelsea, who could only draw with Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge. 'I want to congratulate the players and staff.

With the World Cup just over a month away, the England striker has not looked at his best in recent weeks but has still scored four goals in his past six league games.

'I think that is why I feel so proud.

"Next is the trophy, but you need to build".

"We're delighted to finish it off tonight with Champions League football".

Pochettino, who takes his side to their new stadium with Champions League football under their belt next season, said Spurs have played 37 away games this season and this has made finishing in the top four more satisfying. "It will be a fantastic stadium, but you need to make the stadium your home".

'It was so hard every week, or every game that we play here to move from White Hart Lane to Wembley.

Son Heung-min's low cross teed up Kane to open his body and curl home his 39th goal of the season into the top corner.

Newcastle had created the better openings in the first half with Jonjo Shelvey hitting the post from a free-kick and Jamaal Lascelles' header forcing a good save from Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Spurs were stumbling towards the line and this was another nervy night as Newcastle were not lying down.

Benitez said: "I'm really pleased, because it's not easy when you are safe with five games to go, for a team like us, with a squad like ours when everyone's talking about "oh, they are one of the first candidates to go down".

"Today [Wednesday] we were doing nearly everything well against a good team".
