The Spurs faithful were in high spirits even before the start of the game showing how much White Hart lane meant to them. Spurs though did not take long to make their roars even more louder after Victor Wanyama powerfully headed in Ben Davies’s delightful cross leaving David De Gea helpless to put Spurs ahead. Tottenham controlled most of the 1st half and had most of the chances with Son, Kane and Alli all going close to scoring. United had a sole real chance in the 1st half after Martial tried to curl one in Hugo Lloris’s goal. Spurs started the 2nd half with the same bright fashion after Harry Kane slotted the ball into the United net.

Spurs started the 2nd half with the same bright fashion after Harry Kane slotted the ball into the United net with a neat flicked finish from Christian Eriksen’s free-kick. Wayne Rooney will see his name register as the last player to score a goal at White Hart lane after he gave Manchester United a lifeline by tapping in Anthony Martial’s cross from the left.

However, this did not prove to be enough as Spurs held on and gave their home a fitting farewell by comfortably beating Jose Mourinho’s men. The scenes at the final whistle saw fans from the lower tiers of the lane flood on the ground in joy and excitement.
