"I want to congratulate the players and then I want to congratulate all the staff that work hard every day to achieve everything that we want to achieve".

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.

That figure of 4% chance of a Newcastle win, is the smallest I think I have ever seen for any team, never mind just Newcastle, when it comes to their Super Computer model.

And Pochettino knows how important it was to ensure there would be Champions League football in their new home next season.

At the other end of the table, only defeat for Champions League finalists Liverpool at home to Brighton at the weekend will give Chelsea any chance of a top-four finish as their late season charge came undone at Stamford Bridge.

Next season it will be fantastic for Tottenham to be playing in a new stadium and in the Champions League'.

Sane's cutback was then turned home by Fernandinho 19 minutes from the end to wrap up the victory, which set two more Premier League records - for most wins (31) and most points (97). "We showed character and we showed we are strong as a team".

The game also saw Kenedy make the final appearance of his loan from Chelsea.

Danilo, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho were on the scoresheet for City, who overcame Brighton's early equaliser through Leonardo Ulloa.

After seeing a ten-point lead over Chelsea whittled down to just two after one win in four league games, Spurs needed their talisman to again step up.

The visitors levelled through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, although a Jamie Vardy penalty and Riyad Mahrez strike condemned Arsenal to a seventh consecutive top-flight away defeat - their worst run since 1966. Arsenal, however, could not hold on as Vardy converted a spot-kick after Demarai Gray was fouled and Mahrez sealed the win with a 90th-minute solo effort.
