Pochettino keen to secure third-place finish for Spurs

"But we are there, we are there competing, trying to succeed, pushing hard, working hard, and I think to be now, in four days, to have the option or have it in your hands to be third, I think it's an ideal situation for us and we need to enjoy that, and we need to be focused now on competing and trying to win". I feel disappointed after the weekend in the way that we lost the three points but we need to move on. It's about the players that are going to play die for what we try to achieve.

Tottenham are playing their last game in their temporary home at Wembley Stadium and will look to secure all points in order to stave off the challenge for fourth place from Chelsea.

Spurs have two home Premier League fixtures remaining this season against Newcastle and Leicester, and if they win them both they are guaranteed to finish third.

The Frenchman was however called into action just short of the half hour, needing to be at full stretch to keep out a Jamaal Lascelles header from a corner, while Dwight Gayle headed over moments later despite having the freedom of Spurs' six yard box. But now it's a thing to be altogether with our fans - tomorrow and on Sunday - to play in the Champions League in our new stadium next season. That will be fantastic. We want more. We're ambitious. I'm so excited to fight against Liverpool and Chelsea - big sides, big clubs, and we are there.

While Pochettino admits there are financial benefits to playing in the Champions League, he insists chairman Daniel Levy is not relying on the extra income to fund the club's new stadium.

"Last season at White Hart Lane we played 19 games in the Premier League and we won 17 and drew twice", he said. I think Tottenham will ease to a routine 2-0 win.

If anything the last two games of the campaign may serve as a final audition for some of the fringe players on the Newcastle squad who may be on thin ice heading into the offseason.

While they have been unconvincing of late, they still have a very good record at home and should go into the final day of the season with at least a two-point gap. "Last season was the opposite [of the season before]".

With Newcastle and Brighton already safe, all three promoted teams have avoided relegation this season.

"We have had a taste of Champions League football in the last few years, and we want to do it again, so this year that means we have to finish in the top four, so we will do our best to make it happen". With two games left, to finish third I think is a massive success.
