White Hart Lane received the finale it so richly deserved as we won the last-ever game to be staged at this famous old stadium on Sunday afternoon, beating Manchester United 2-1.
Early goals in each half laid the platform for the victory, our 17th home win in the Premier League this season, to ensure we went unbeaten at the Lane throughout the campaign, drawing the other two. We’ve not done that since the 1964-65 season.
It was also our 14th successive home win in the league, equalling a club record set across the 1986-87 and 1987-88 campaigns.
Victor Wanyama set the ball rolling with the opening goal after just six minutes, heading home unmarked from a Ben Davies cross to give an already fired up Spurs faithful exactly the start they wanted. It was Wanyama’s fourth goal of the season.
And just four minutes into the second period, we doubled our lead when Harry Kane flicked in Christian Eriksen’s free-kick to score his first goal against Manchester United on his seventh appearance against them. That means he has now scored against 24 of the 25 teams he has faced in the Premier League... Cardiff City being the only exception.
Hugo Lloris had barely had a save to make yet the visitors pulled a goal back on 71 minutes, Wayne Rooney converting the lively Anthony Martial’s low cross. There were a few moments of concern towards the end of the game, but we held on to win on this momentous occasion.
So our final statistics for competitive games at White Hart Lane read: Played 2533, won 1471, drawn 566, lost 496, goals for 5269, goals against 2793.
