Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Newcastle United

Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Newcastle United

Kane's goal was his 28th in the Premier League this seasonHarry Kane scored the only goal as Tottenham secured a top-four finish and qualification for next season's Champions League with victory over Newcastle at Wembley.The win takes Spurs into third with one game remaining, four points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, who could only draw with Huddersfield.Mauricio Pochettino's side disappointed for much of the game but Kane beautifully guided a shot into the top corner from the edge of the box in the 50th minute.
Newcastle had created the better openings in the first half with Jonjo Shelvey hitting the post from a free-kick and Jamaal Lascelles' header forcing a good save from Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.The home fans had become increasingly frustrated before Kane's goal with Spurs continuing the lacklustre form of recent weeks which had put their Champions League qualification in jeopardy.Newcastle continued to impress after going behind and Jacob Murphy should have equalised but his smashed his shot from inside the area over the bar moments after coming off the bench.
Kane helps Spurs limp over the line
Spurs had only taken four points from their previous four league games and were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester United last month.That form meant the race for the top four would have gone to the final day were it not for Chelsea surprisingly dropping points at Stamford Bridge, even with Spurs' win.Pochettino's side missed half-chances and misplaced passes throughout and their only real moment of quality was Kane's goal.The home fans' nervousness regarding their league position was clear with the groans in the first half and they also cheered loudly when the result at Stamford Bridge became clear.Kane himself had been wasteful, skewing a left-footed volley wide early in the first half and completely missing his kick when trying to convert when through on goal with the ball dropping over his shoulder.With the World Cup just over a month away, the England striker has not looked at his best in recent weeks but has still scored four goals in his past six league games.Spurs already knew they would end another season without a trophy but they have at least ensured a third consecutive Champions League campaign for next season.More to follow.
