Tottenham clinch top-four finish after beating Newcastle

Harry Kane struck early in the second half to secure a 1-0 win over Newcastle United for Spurs and ensure a top-four Premier League finish.

It also ensured Champions League qualification for next season.

With Chelsea held to a 1-1 draw at home to Huddersfield Town, Tottenham's win left them four points clear of their London rivals with one round of games remaining this season.

Kane struck five minutes into the second half with a precise finish from inside the area after being fed by Son Heung-min to relieve the tension that had built up inside Wembley Stadium.

Newcastle almost scored early in the first half when Jonjo Shelvey's free kick clipped the post but Spurs improved after the break and Kane grabbed his 28th league goal of the season.
