Tottenham securing Champions League a 'massive achievement' - Pochettino

Real Madrid are monitoring Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino while Chelsea are also admirers

Despite Kane's goal, Newcastle continued to threaten throughout the half, and squandered a great opportunity for a deserved equalizer with just under 20 minutes remaining.

Christian Eriksen was the first to test Newcastle's goal, with a smart freekick which was just tipped over. The England global exchanged passes with Heung-Min Son before beating Dubravka with a shot from just inside a crowded box.

If you thought Kane was the standout player for Spurs, however, you couldn't be more off the mark as it was captain and custodian Hugo Lloris who singlehandedly kept the Lilywhites in the game with save after save.

Despite the one goal cushion, Newcastle were still causing Tottenham trouble at the back, and if it wasn't for a mishit Perez shot, they could've been right back in the game.

Rafa Benitez made two changes for the game, recalling Matt Ritchie and DeAndre Yedlin to his starting XI. "That was the challenge four years ago", he told the media after the game against Newcastle.

The juggernaut was the fastest ever to cross the $1 billion mark globally, doing so in just 11 days of release on Saturday. Although critics were not especially won over by " Overboard ", audiences gave the film a more favorable A- CinemaScore.

After a frustrating first half, a move involving Dele Alli, Kane and Son Heung-min produced the kind of cohesive, fast passing that was Spurs' trademark earlier in the season and the England marksman's finish was sublime. But it is not the first time this season that Benitez's side have lived to rue missed opportunities. I think Moussa Sissoko was one of the best today.

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). It is patently clear that he just isn't up to the standards of his teammates, and this summer will most likely be a case of finding him a new club.

This was Spurs' first league double over Newcastle since 2004-05.

"I think we need to put into our minds that it is going to be hard until the end, until the last game, until the last minute against Leicester because we are in the Premier League and we are fighting against Liverpool, against Chelsea for the top four and they are both top clubs".

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

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. His loan spell from the West London club comes to an end prematurely due to ineligibility.
