48' - GOAL! Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Manchester United: it's a first against United for Harry Kane, flicking home Eriksen's wicked free kick with an outstretched boot after Bailly had brought down Alli.

In today's official matchday programme, Kane said: "Today's game will be a sad occasion I'm sure, the end of an era". "We've been thinking about it a lot and when the new stadium opens it will help us a lot to reach the next level", he said.

"I'm proud to put my mark on the Lane, now I'm hoping I'll make an even bigger impact at the new place".

While United may still have the chance to compete in the Champions League next season via the Europa League, missing out on the top four positions for two seasons running is simply not good enough for a club of their size.

Next season Mauricio Pochettino's men will play all their home games at the national stadium, with their Wembley woes a hoodoo they must overcome in 2017/18 if they are to challenge for the title for the third consecutive campaign.

As far as farewells go, Tottenham Hotspur supporters must be pretty pleased with what they've seen so far as their side lead Manchester United by 1-0 at half-time. Danny Rose is not yet match-fit despite having returned to training after injury, so Ben Davies is expected to continue at left-back.

Mourinho has other problems to solve if United are to salvage a Champions League spot from their miserable season by defeating Ajax, but he is a manager who always builds from the back, and he can not do that with Smalling or Jones in the team.

Tottenham are aiming to go unbeaten at home for the first time in a league season since 1964-65. Arsenal won the game 2-0.

That goal took his season tally to 22, while he has now scored against 24 of the 25 Premier League rivals he has faced, barring Cardiff City.

Spurs have won their last 13 home league matches - one short of their club record run of 14 between January and October 1987.
