Tottenham secures 2nd spot
    2017-May-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TOTTENHAM locked down second place in the Premier League on Sunday by beating Manchester United 2-1 in its final game before leaving its north London home of 118 years. Tottenham’s hopes of catching newly crowned champion Chelsea ended a week ago, but it was still able to secure its highest finish in 54 years.

Tottenham’s triumph ended Jose Mourinho’s hopes of United making the top four, leaving three teams chasing the last two Champions League spots: Liverpool, which beat West Ham 4-0 Sunday, Manchester City and Arsenal.

The three relegation spots have also been filled. Hull joined Sunderland and Middlesbrough in dropping into the second tier after losing 4-0 at Crystal Palace.

Tottenham is leaving White Hart Lane after completing its best campaign at the stadium for more than a century. Spurs are due back on the site in a new 61,000-seat stadium in August 2018, after a season at Wembley.

Victor Wanyama’s sixth-minute header set the tone for a carnival atmosphere and Harry Kane added his 28th goal of the season at the start of the second half. United captain Wayne Rooney pulled one back but Tottenham held on to win.

It wasn’t so memorable for the “Special One,” with Mourinho’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League with United now resting on beating Ajax in the Europa League final.

“We know that if we lose the final we don’t play Champions League,” said Mourinho. “But we fight for titles and probably other clubs finishing in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position to try to fight for a title.” (SD-Agencies)
