Kane secures top-four finish for Spurs

Four league wins on the bounce have put Antonio Conte’s side within touching distance

Kane showed more composure five minutes after the restart to ease the tension around Wembley, cushioning a classy finish into the top corner from Son Heung-min's layoff, for his 28th league goal this term.

Rafa Benitez's men fashioned two of the best openings in the first 45 minutes, with Jonjo Shelvey rattling the post with a brilliant effort from a free-kick just outside the box.

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.

With the prospect of moving into a new stadium next season and a top four place guaranteed, Pochettino took the time to acknowledge the collective efforts of the club this campaign as Spurs now look a side on an upward trajectory.

The home side have picked up only four points from their last 12, leaving them vulnerable to missing out on Champions League qualification, with Chelsea only two points behind.

That form meant the race for the top four would have gone to the final day were it not for Chelsea surprisingly dropping points at Stamford Bridge, even with Spurs' win.

Maurico Pochettino cut a frustrating figure on the touchline, which wasn't helped when Harry Kane fluffed his lines with a great chance on the stroke of half time. For the fans also.

Kane himself had been wasteful, skewing a left-footed volley wide early in the first half and completely missing his kick when trying to convert when through on goal with the ball dropping over his shoulder.

With Tottenham playing with the motivation of securing their Champions League qualifying spot against a Newcastle team with nothing to play for, we expect the hosts to get the win.

The Spurs boss also took the unusual step of thanking Moussa Sissoko for his professionalism, while congratulating everyone associated with the club - but particularly the France worldwide, who made his 14th league start of the season against the Magpies. I think Moussa Sissoko was one of the best today.

Fans were disappointed with the result, although a number of them took to Twitter to slate the performance of Dwight Gayle. That all changed just five minutes after half time when the trio combined well and Spurs found the opener. Pressed in a news conference about the clubs plans during the summer, Benitez admitted that they will need to break their current transfer record to sign a new striker.

That set some alarm bells off in the Spurs camp, with the home side dominating proceedings from there on in.
