Earlier, supporters had arrived to white commemorative T-shirts and flags hanging from their seats while the team wore special edition matchday shirts, emblazoned with a one-off White Hart Lane crest.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has handed over the keys of White Hart Lane to the main contractor for the construction of the club's new stadium. The vast majority of it has centred around the fact that it is Spurs' last match at historic White Hart Lane. "We have been unbeaten at home all season so there are a lot of things to be happy about".

"It was a very emotional game and emotional ceremony", he said.

Spurs fans will be returning to the ground for the 2018/19 season, but the 61,000 seater stadium will be unrecognisable from the current version of White Hart Lane.

Arguably, the finest of all was paid by a true modern legend of the Premier League: David Beckham.

Pochettino's side are gunning for a 14th successive home league win, which would equal the club record, set over two seasons in 1987, and establish a new mark for consecutive home victories within the same campaign.

This afternoon was Tottenham's 2,532nd match in all competitions at the ground, with 1,472 wins, 565 draws and 496 defeats from those games. The powerful moment for Spurs has now inspired #COYS #TheLaneTheFinale and #FarewellWhiteHartLane top trending terms on Twitter. The Argentine manager was pleased with his side's performance, and the win clinched second place in the Premier League table behind champions Chelsea. "For now it is to say to the fans and everyone that we will give our best and try to fight again next season to try to win the league". "We'll see what's still there, because the players started to take everything!" It has been an wonderful stadium for us, especially this season having gone unbeaten. "When people say we gamble (with the team selection at Tottenham), we didn't gamble, we didn't choose the Europa League". We had to do it because, if I have Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Tim Fosu-Mensah, if I have these guys, I can rotate, I can go for every match.

Us too, Poch. Us too. Danny Rose is not yet match-fit despite having returned to training after injury, so Ben Davies is expected to continue at left-back.
