Roberto Soldado posts heartfelt White Hart Lane tribute on Instagram

"That's got to be the next step, celebrations like we had for the final game at White Hart Lane, but this time with a title or a cup".

Marouane Fellaini, whose goal helped United secure a 2-1 aggregate win over Celta Vigo that set up a meeting with Ajax in the 24 May final, is unavailable due to a domestic suspension. "There are not many better clubs to be at around the world".

In the interim, Mauricio Pochettino's men will play home matches next season at Wembley, where they hosted European fixtures this season, before moving back to what will be a very different N17.

In its 118 year history, White Hart Lane has seen numerous awesome performances and Pochettino believes that this one was "another great performance at White Hart Lane". It has been an fantastic stadium for us, especially this season having gone unbeaten.

Victory with goals by Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane meant Tottenham are assured of finishing as runners-up to Chelsea in the Premier League, their best top flight finish for 54 years. "Because with the training ground, the new facilities and the new stadium will put the team and the club in the last level in Europe".

Demolition work on the Lane, Spurs' home since 1899, will begin on Monday to make way for the club's new 61,559-seater stadium, which will be completed in time for the 2018-19 campaign.

Paul Merson states his prediction for Southampton v Man United
But one day off you are right, sometimes you need a day off and they don't know what a day off is. This adds huge significance to the Europa League final against Ajax later this month.

"I think we had 30-odd thousand throughout the whole season, we're going to have 80-odd thousand next year so we've got to make that a fortress as well". It was just our performances on them days weren't great.

He also confirmed that he had asked if his club could be the first to play Spurs at the new stadium tweeting: "Contact (has been) made".

"We've got to use this as motivation to get there".

He concluded by looking to the future saying that "now we have to focus on the last two games", adding "All we can say is that next season we will give our best and try to win the league".

"We have a special bond at Tottenham that you don't always get elsewhere".

"We finished obviously third last season, second this year - we've got to try and take that next step and try and finish first".
