Tottenham give White Hart Lane perfect send-off with win over Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has stated that he would rather forfeit the remaining Premier League matches as he hailed his players' performance despite losing 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur in the farewell game at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

After the game, a closing ceremony displayed a video of the story of White Hart Lane and 48 club legends were paraded on the pitch under a rainbow and confetti as the club said an emotional goodbye to their home.

Luke Shaw (foot), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (knee), Marcos Rojo (knee), Ashley Young (hamstring) and Timothy Fosu-Mensah (shoulder) are out for the season and the United boss could be tempted to include U23 starlets Axel Tuanzebe and Scott McTominay after the pair made their debuts against Arsenal last weekend.

Danny Rose has returned to full training but is probably not fit enough to feature in the clash with United.

"We wanted a win so badly in our last game here. We are determined that it will be a worthy successor to White Hart Lane and a fitting stage for our current and future great teams".

"Of course we're sad but the most important thing is to know the heart of White Hart Lane, the soul and the smell, we'll keep behind".

The Premier League paid tribute to some of the gifted players that played at the lane with the likes of Glenn Hoddle, Bill Nicholson, Ricky Villa, Ossie Ardiles, J├╝rgen Klinsmann and Gareth Bale all appearing in this rousing video. It will be the last Spurs match at the old stadium, a new stadium is being built on the site.

"Now it's in their hands to win the Premier League".

Tottenham could go unbeaten at home for the first time in a league season since 1964/65 (W16 D2 L0 this season).

Kyle Walker has been linked with a move to either Manchester club this summer, while reports have emerged linking Manchester United with interest in Eric Dier.

Their visitors today are Manchester United, who squeezed into the final of the Europa League on Thursday night with a 2-1 aggregate win over Spanish side Celta Vigo in the semi-finals.

A record-equalling 14th successive home league victory only underlines the club's progress and promise.

They have hit the woodwork 20 times this season, more than any other club in the top flight.

Mauricio Pochettino has admitted that his emotions may get the better of him as Tottenham Hotspur bid a final farewell to White Hart Lane on Sunday.

"We will make Wembley our home and we will start to feel very comfortable there", he said.
