EPL: Spurs defeat Leicester in nine-goal Wembley thriller

Manchester United Chelsea and PSG are keen on Alderweireld as his contract saga drags

Manchester United Chelsea and PSG are keen on Alderweireld as his contract saga drags

Mauricio Pochettino says he will celebrate Tottenham's Champions League qualification but admits the fans "deserve a trophy" after a decade-long drought.

Kelechi Iheanacho's stunning shot put Leicester two clear just after halftime but it provoked a furious Spurs response in which Erik Lamela struck twice either side of an own goal by Christian Fuchs, who deflected Lamela's shot in off his knee.

Spurs booked a third successive year in Europe's elite club competition, in a season where they played "home games" at Wembley and all the other teams around them spent massively. After four years, we need to assess that period and try to be contenders and win big, big trophies. His side have not finished campaigns well and he will want his side to turn things around this season.

"I think we feel so proud". It is so important to move to the new stadium, the new facilities are unbelievable but we will also be closer to winning.

Pochettino urged the club to "tell the truth" to supporters about what is possible given the investment in a £780 million stadium and to "create dreams that are possible to achieve". You can not create dreams thinking you are not going to achieve these dreams.




"It's true that from the beginning nobody believed in us because everyone was anxious about playing at Wembley for many, many games". We can not invest insane money.

But asked if he could guarantee he will still be at the helm next term, Pochettino repeated his answer from last week that "in football you never know". We need to feel we are a special club. Our fans need to know what we are doing and our fans need to feel the reality of club.

Toby Alderweireld took to Twitter after Tottenham's incredibly dramatic final day victory over Leicester City at Wembley to thank the fans for their support - and the fans responded by urging the Belgian not to leave the club in the summer. We had to do much better after our third goal.

"And this season, again, despite playing at Wembley and many things from the beginning, still (for) some the situation is that, 'Oh yes, but the team needs to win some titles'. Don't take this in [a] negative way, this always happens at the end of the season at all clubs, the manager speaks to owners, sporting director and chief executive to analyse the season and thinking how to improve".
