Lloris echoes Wenger with top-four trophy claim

Lloris echoes Wenger with top-four trophy claim

Harry Kane's second-half goal let an out-of-sorts Spurs team off the hook after they were second best at times versus Rafael Benitez's determined Newcastle side on a tense evening in north London.

"For the club it is a massive thing to go and move to the new stadium and play Champions League", the former Southampton boss added.

Rose came off the bench late in the game and nearly bagged a second goal for Spurs as fellow substitute Lamela played him in on goal, but the left-back could not beat Dubravka.

Tottenham Hotspur secured Champions League football for next season by beating Newcastle, while Chelsea's top-four hopes got slimmer following a draw at Huddersfield, whose safety from relegation was confirmed. "This was the challenge four decades back", he told the press following the game against Newcastle.

Financing the stadium and developing a team that can compete for major honours is a tricky balancing act with their London rivals Arsenal under departing manager Arsene Wenger being a prime example of a club that has struggled to achieve it.

"If we have time on the ball for Jonjo Shelvey he can make things happen".

Toure captained the side in his first Premier League start of the season and played 85 minutes.

"I was shocked that we had the lead!"

"We did really well, 14 attempts against Tottenham at home, means that something we did was right", he said. We are not at a club that wins a lot in the last [few] years. "We have showed everybody that we are humble but we are ambitious".

Danilo opened the scoring before Bernardo Silva helped set City's record for most goals in a Premier League season with their 104th of the campaign, and Fernandinho rounded off the win, while Leonardo Ulloa netted for the visitors. Fifth-placed Chelsea are on 70 and hence, can not overtake the Lilywhites as they have just one game left in the season.

However, England's talisman still can't be offered too many clear-cut chances, and he made amends to settle Spurs' nerves five minutes into the second-half.

Leicester City returned to winning ways with a 3-1 win over 10-man Arsenal at the King Power Stadium.

The Tottenham legend revealed his pride at seeing Tottenham confirm their participation in the Champions League and believes it is more significant as they played all their home games at Wembley.
