Tottenham are ensured a spot in the Champions League next season after their 1-0 victory over Newcastle.

Next season it will be fantastic for Tottenham to be playing in a new stadium and in the Champions League'.

Spurs will finish the campaign without silverware but the win means they qualify for the Champions League for a third successive season.

Spurs qualified for the Champions League for a third consecutive season thanks to Harry Kane's victor in a nervy 1-0 win over Newcastle allied to Chelsea's 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield.

"I am so proud of all the players", said Pochettino.

Having collected only four points from their last four league games and suffered yet more semifinal heartbreak in the FA Cup along the way, their season is in severe risk of burning out. "It's a massive congratulations and a massive thank you to the staff too". Despite fluffing one good first-half chance, Kane produced the kind of finish that England will hope he can replicate at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Talking to reporters, according to Goal, he said: "We are in a period of the season where - and it is the same for every team - we don't have the freshness that we had in September, October and November".

"But I understand people want more".

"Players like [Victor] Wanyama who haven't played too much, they were injured and today when you need to win they were there on the pitch giving their best". "Maybe from the outside no one expected us to be in the top four again this season".

"Now, after 23 years at the Premier League, this is the first time Tottenham are over the other London clubs".

Both sides made no changes at the interval and the half began much like the first ended with Newcastle on top. You can bet Pochettino will have brought that match up multiple times this week to everyone in his squad. We are not in a club that win a lot in last years.

'To create a winning mentality is a step-by-step process and then we have to challenge the big sides.

While the chance to play at Wembley could prove inspirational to his players, Benitez side have only won once from eight attempts on the road in recent weeks while they haven't triumphed at Wembley for 63 years.

Kane struck five minutes into the second half with a precise finish from inside the area after being fed by Son Heung-min to relieve the tension that had built up inside Wembley Stadium.

Pochettino enjoys the players and staff will require a while to settle in their new surroundings.
