Tottenham Beat United To Confirm Second Spot Finish In White Hart Lane Farewell
Tottenham Hotspur signed off their final game at White Hart Lane in winning style, beating Manchester United 2-1 thanks to goals from Victor Wanyama and a first against the Red Devils for Harry Kane.
Spurs’ victory means they haven’t lost a game at white Hart Lane and will finish the season in second place in their final season at their historic home for the first time in 54 years.
A party atmosphere pervaded the stadium and the fans were treated to the best possible start as Wanyama headed home Ben Davies’ cross after just six minutes as Spurs dominated the opening exchanges. It got even better after the break, Kane extending his right leg to flick home Christian Eriksen’s excellent free kick.
United were not without chances of their own, however, and it was left for Wayne Rooney to set up a grandstand finish, flicking home Anthony Martial’s cutback via the leg of Jan Vertonghen.
