Spurs need Kane relief to seal top-four finish

Spurs need Kane relief to seal top-four finish

Harry Kane fired Tottenham Hotspur into next season's Champions League as Chelsea faltered in a 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield on Wednesday that secured survival for the Terriers.

Harry Kane's sweet first-time strike in the 50th minute was the difference on the night, with the striker curling one into the far corner after Heung-Min Son had laid it off for him inside the box.

"Absolutely, 100% we deserved something", said Benitez. Tottenham were a bit anxious and we had enough chances to score.

"You can see that it's not enough to have the possibility to fight for the Champions League".

"There was even another one on Ayoze from behind, but two clear penalties".

Labaik's leader, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, condemned the attack and said his party had not authorized anyone to take up arms. Considered the brains behind the PML-N's development agenda, Iqbal previously headed Pakistan's Planning Ministry.

If you thought Kane was the standout player for Spurs, however, you couldn't be more off the mark as it was captain and custodian Hugo Lloris who singlehandedly kept the Lilywhites in the game with save after save.

"In the games that we couldn't win, we were very close. Yes, it will be a fantastic stadium but we need to make it home and we need time".

Substitute Jacob Murphy also had a chance seconds after replacing Kenedy, who made the final appearance of his loan from Chelsea. We have the experience now to build and create something new.

The visitors continued to look unsafe but Tottenham found themselves with a fine chance to open the scoring, but Kane uncharacteristically fluffed his lines when through on goal and only Martin Dubravka to beat, kicking at fresh air.

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 global, who made his 14th league start of the season against the Magpies.

'It's a massive achievement to qualify again, ' said boss Mauricio Pochettino. Of course we are a little concerned about the situation, only the wishes and I hope that it is not a big issue and he can be ready and fit to play the World Cup. I also want to congratulate all the staff.

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. It's a massive effort.

"Now, [after] almost 38 games playing away from home in the Premier League, I think it's good to say thank you to all the staff".

The result moved Spurs up to third and put paid to fears of their season ending in failure following a slump in form while setting up a season of Champions League football in their new stadium.
