Spurs 2-1 Man United - Seven Deadly Stats

Tottenham fans run on to the pitch to celebrate with Tottenham's Jan Vertonghen after the match

Kane scored Spurs' last-ever goal at the old stadium in a 2-1 win against Manchester United and the match was followed by a mass pitch invasion by supporters and a joyous and emotional closing ceremony, featuring 48 iconic former players.

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.

In the interim, Mauricio Pochettino's men will play home matches next season at Wembley, where they hosted European fixtures this season, before moving back to what will be a very different N17. In that time, Tottenham has spent about as much as it has recouped on transfers.

It's enough to bring a tear to the eye of any Spurs fan.

However, Kane does not expect an exodus at a club he believes are still on the up.

"When you move to another area it's so hard, but now we are changing nothing because the new stadium will be in the same place as White Hart Lane and that is fantastic".

I have got some great memories of the Lane, and it will be missed but in modern-day football you have got to move on - you have got to move with the times if you want to be at the top. To see it go in was special.

The result means that Spurs have confirmed a second-place Premier League finish and are unbeaten at home this season.

"The club legends that have gone past and walked out today, and the team we have got now and the staff and the manager". The emblem won't have far to move at a club making progress on and off the pitch. It's the next step for us. I am not too anxious, I don't think the players are too anxious. "It's disappointing to lose out on the title again, but we are getting better", he said.

"Going forward, in theory, they should only get better.

There will always be a White Hart Lane". We're a family on and off the pitch.

"Because of my respect for them (Tottenham), I didn't rest more people", said Mourinho, whose side visit Southampton on Wednesday. Tottenham finished in the top two for the first time in the league since 1963 and also finished above their local rivals Arsenal for the first time in over two decades.

"Exactly, that's got to be the next celebration", Kane added.

"I think I'm a very lucky guy because to share the history of this Club, in that special moment, is so lucky and I am so happy".

Plenty of the best players to have played for the club at their magnificent home ground were present at the game and paid tribute to the stadium.
