Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino said the club should be in a celebratory mood after securing a Champions League place for the third successive season despite another trophyless campaign.

'I think it is not the only thing in football to win titles, but I think after to win in every single aspect I think this club, these group of players, people working here and the fans deserve to celebrate some trophies'.

Speaking about the end of the season, Pochettino said in his press conference: "We don't have players' awards evenings". "At Tottenham, we have always had that feeling that what we have done is not enough", he told reporters.

"To be in the Champions League next season is massive for the club". Fifth is OK, but it's not enough. But there are a lot of positives, and now we need to continue and take those positives into the last game of the season.

The 46-year-old, who joined Spurs in 2014, still has three years on his contract in north London and said there was "no point" talking about his future.

The breakthrough for Spurs came just after the break, though, when Kane scored with a sidefooted shot into the top corner for his 28th league goal of the season after fine build-up play involving Dele Alli and South Korean Son.

I repeat, when we arrived here (the aim) was to be focused in trying to provide the team the discipline, the philosophy to create the platform to be competitive and then work with all the resources the club provides for us and be focused on delivering the best job. Alderweireld's contract contains a one-year extension option, which activates in the summer of 2019 and would keep him at the club until 2020.

He said: "One way is to spend money".

Spurs will once again be without Harry Winks (ankle) against Leicester on Sunday, and his fellow central midfielders Mousa Dembele (ankle), Eric Dier (illness) and Victor Wanyama (thigh) will be assessed, along with right-backs Kieran Trippier (knee) and Serge Aurier (hamstring).

"I think Juan Foyth deserves to play and he is doing fantastic and I will repeat that so maybe, I am thinking, maybe it is is not insane to see a player like him or Kyle Walker-Peters in the starting XI".
