What a week, three years ago.
Fresh from an emotional Finale to White Hart Lane - and a 2-1 win against United, to preserve our unbeaten home record and secure second in the Premier League - we faced trips to Leicester City (Thursday, 18 May) and then Hull on last weekend of the 2016/17 season (Sunday, 21 May).
We ran riot at Leicester, where Harry Kane's four goals led us to a 6-1 victory at the KP Stadium.
On the Sunday, we swapped the KP for the KCOM Stadium and wired in again for the last time that campaign. Hull, with Spurs legends Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone in their ranks, had no answer as we went into a 3-0 lead at the break.
Hull grabbed a goal back on 66 minutes, but that only sparked a spectacular last 20 as we racked up another four goals for the 7-1 victory - with Victor Wanyama, Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld all joining the party!
Of course, the day - and week - belonged to Harry. Eight goals in the final three matches including successive hat-tricks took him to 29 goals in the Premier League, 35 for the season and saw him retain the Premier League's Golden Boot.
