Tottenham Hotspur said goodbye to White Hart Lane with victory over Manchester United

Posted: 14 May 2017 Time: 20:45

Tottenham bid farewell to White Hart Lane in appropriate fashion by recording a 2-1 win over Manchester United on Sunday to finish the season unbeaten at home.

Mauricio Pochettino's side got off to a flying start with an early goal from Victor Wanyama, before Harry Kane doubled their advantage shortly after half-time.

Wayne Rooney managed to halve the deficit for United, but it was not enough as Spurs gave their fans the perfect send-off at the Lane.

Tottenham will spend next season at Wembley Stadium before moving in to a new stadium ahead of the 2018/19 campaign. They have played at White Hart Lane since 1899.

Liverpool took a huge step towards securing a top-four finish as they hammered West Ham 4-0 at the Olympic Stadium.

Phillipe Coutinho was the star performer for Jurgen Klopp's side as he played in Daniel Sturridge on 35 minutes for the England striker to open the scoring.

Coutinho then bagged a brace, as he found the bottom corner in the 57th minute and scored again just three minutes later. The Hammers were never really in the game and Divock Origi finished them off with 14 minutes remaining.

Crystal Palace secured their Premier League status with a convincing 4-0 victory over Hull City, who suffered relegation with one game to go in the season.

Wilfried Zaha scored in the second minute to get the ball rolling and Christian Benteke doubled Palace's lead 30 minutes later as they looked in control at half-time.

The Tigers started the second half well but a Luka Milivojevic penalty and a late Patrick Van Aanholt goal confirmed their return to the Championship next term.
