Spurs hold on to beat Man United

In their last game at the White Hart Lane, Tottenham Hotspur earned a 2-1 victory against Manchester United thanks to goals from Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane on Sunday.

Spurs plan to have their new stadium, built on the same site, ready for the next season and will temporarily play their home matches at Wembley when the season begins.

Having already secured second place in the table, Wanyama got Spurs off to the best possible start with a header five minutes in and Kane doubled their lead early in the second half, flicking home from a Christian Eriksen free-kick.

Captain Wayne Rooney gave Man United hope of a recovery when he poked in from Anthony Martial’s delivery, but they were unable to grab the point.

United’s chances of finishing in the top four were already over after Liverpool’s 4-0 win over West Ham earlier on Sunday.

But the Red Devils can still qualify for the Champions League if they win the Europa League, which holds May 24, against Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam.
